Syria: A Challenger to Assad's Presidency

Lawyer Abdallah al-Khalil announced that he submitted an application to be nominated for presidency of Syria, days before the referendum on current President Bashar Assad. Citing a constiutional contradiction, between two articles, one calls for chosing the President through the elctoral process, while the other [which is curently put in use] calls for a referendum.

Within days of the Syrian national referendum on the presidency of Bashar al-Asad, a lawyer by the name of Abdallah al-Khalil announced that he is submitted an application to minister of justice to register as a candidate for the presidential elections!

writes Abu Kareem from Levantine Dreamhouse.
