Syria's Assad wins presidential elections

Syria's incumbent President Bashar al-Assad has won a third seven-year term in office in the presidential elections that took place on Tuesday, the Syrian Parliament announced on Wednesday.

According to a parliament speaker, 1,319,723 people voted for Assad, which made about 88.7 percent of the votes.

Earlier on Wednesday Syria's Supreme Constitutional Court said that 11,634,412 out of 15,845,575 eligible voters participated in the presidential elections, placing the turnout rate at 73.42 percent.

The general election started at 7:00 a.m. local time (0400 GMT) on Tuesday and was previously scheduled to end at 7:00 p.m. local time (1600 GMT). But the Supreme Judicial Committee, which was tasked with overseeing the electoral process, later announced to extend the voting for another five hours until midnight on Tuesday, citing a "huge turnout."

It is the first multi-candidate presidential election in Syria' s modern history, which has been dismissed by the exiled opposition and their Western backers as "farce."

据拉哈姆宣布的数据,巴沙尔获得约1032万张有效选票,得票率为88.7%,另外两位候选人哈贾尔和诺里分别获得3.2%和4.3%的选票。

拉哈姆说,此次大选境内外有投票资格的选民人数约为1584万,实际投票人数约为1163万,投票率为73.42%,其中无效票约为44万张。

尽管巴沙尔此前通过官方媒体要求民众不要朝天鸣枪以示庆祝,但在大选结果宣布前后仍有许多人走上街头鸣枪庆祝,首都大马士革街头能听到密集的枪声。

根据叙利亚议会2月通过的新宪法,总统由选民直接选举,任期为7年,只允许连任1次。总统候选人需获得绝对多数选民票数才能当选。此次大选投票分境内和境外两阶段进行,境外投票于5月28日启动,境内投票于当地时间3日7时启动,随后最高选举司法委员会决定将投票时间延长5小时,于当地时间4日零时结束。(新华网)
