DAMASCUS- In a statement to SANA, Chairman of the Elections Higher Committee, Attorney General Khalaf al-Azzawi, said the committee would hold a meeting with the sub-committees before elections date to discuss the process of elections, the election propagandas, counting of votes and announcing the results.

The Local Administration Elections Higher Committee discussed on Sunday the candidacy process set to start on December 12, and the measures taken to guarantee honest, democratic elections according to the elections law issued by legislative decree No. 101 for 2011.



Higher committee decided to direct the sub-committees in the Syrian provinces to fully supervise candidacy applications, stressing the implementation of article No. 20 of the elections law which grants the right to run for the People's Assembly and the local councils according to the standards provided by the new elections law.

The committee requested that the sub-committees should cooperate and coordinate with demonstrative apparatuses according to law to offer all facilitations for supervision to guarantee democratic and honest elections.

The Higher Committee also requested that authorities set up electronic screens in the squares of all provinces to display the counting of votes to preserve the transparency and honesty of elections.

According to law provides for elections; the elections campaign should not include any racial, sectarian ethnic or tribal indications and candidates should not use foreign media for their election campaigns, which should be halted twenty four hours before the elections date.

Higher Committee for Elections was formed under Law No. 374 for the year 2011, comprising 5 judges from the Court of Cassation whose responsibility is to fully supervise and conduct the election process.

The submission of candidacy applications started on October 28 and will last till November 3, 2011.

Several lawyers and academic figures have stressed that the local council elections according to the new law is a genuine translation of the comprehensive reform program commenced by President Bashar al-Assad, adding that this is the first step on the way of enhancing democracy and reducing centrality in decision-making.

Member of the Bar Association –Daraa Branch, lawyer Imad Mansour, said the elections come in the framework of the reform steps which would make Syria emerge out of the crisis stronger and more immune.

For his part, lawyer Maher al-Mikdad said the local community in Daraa province believes the local council elections and the upcoming legislative elections are a new start in the political life of Syria, calling on citizens to participate in those elections.

Chairman of the Bar Association – Der-Ezzor Branch, Asaad al-Dandal, said the elections pave the way for honest and just competitions that meet the requirements of democratic life.
