Syrian presidential elections: power, opposition and the role of Russia

121

The presidential elections in the Syrian Arab Republic will take place on May 26, less than a week later. The main candidate and one hundred percent winner is the incumbent President Bashar al-Assad. He has been in power for exactly 21 years, since July 2000. It turns out that Assad and Putin are the same age as in power in their countries, although the age of the Syrian president is much younger - he is only 55 years old.


Constitution and elections or elections and constitution?


According to the Syrian constitution adopted in 2012, only a Muslim over 40 years of age who has Syrian citizenship and has lived in the country for at least ten years can be a candidate for the presidency. According to the constitution, the president can be in power for no more than two seven-year terms in a row.

Assad has been in power for 21 years, but in Syria there was also an analogue of "zeroing", so the current head of state can be nominated for the presidency. However, for the Syrian opposition, Assad's nomination is proof of the "fictitiousness" of the upcoming presidential elections. Moreover, the elections will not be held throughout the country, but only in the provinces and settlements controlled by the government of the SAR.

The opposition and the West behind it believe that elections should be held only after the adoption of the country's new constitution. Back in 2015, the UN Security Council adopted a corresponding resolution: first - a new constitution, then - elections. However, how this can be done in the context of the ongoing civil war, the opposition does not say. In this regard, Russia has a more reasonable position: there will be a new constitution - there will be new elections, but so far the old constitution of the country, which has not been canceled, is in effect, and the elections are held in accordance with the current constitution.

What is the point in postponing or canceling elections if there is no new constitution in nature? The only thing that can explain such a position of the West is the continuing desire to undermine Assad's power and remove him. No one in the United States or the European Union has yet abandoned the idea of ​​changing the regime in Syria. Therefore, any pretext will be used to criticize Bashar al-Assad and his actions.


Assad's candidacy and Russia


Western media accuse Russia of unequivocally supporting Bashar al-Assad. But why shouldn't Moscow support him? Is there any other candidate in modern Syria that would be more acceptable to Russia?

Before the Arab Spring, inspired by the West, Syria was one of the most prosperous states in the Arab East, combining certain secular freedoms, a market economy, and social order. That bloody and terrible war, which has been going on in the country for a whole decade, was a direct consequence of the policy of the West, which, without waiting for a natural course stories, decided to put an end to the unreliable, from the point of view of Washington, Bashar al-Assad's regime and made a bet on those forces that could neither overthrow Assad, nor stabilize the situation in the country.

As a result, chaos ensued in Syria in a significant part of the territory, the country actually turned into a patchwork quilt, where each group controls a certain territory.

For many years there have been foreign troops on Syrian soil, and the government of the republic did not invite Americans or Turks to Syria, unlike the Russian army. Bashar al-Assad was able to maintain relatively good relations with Russia, and today Moscow has no reason not to support him. And there is no one else to bet on, given the diversity of the modern Syrian political map.

The fact that Bashar al-Assad today has no other alternative has long been thought of in the League of Arab States. Many Arab countries that once opposed the Syrian leader have already changed their position. And this is reasonable: first you need to end the civil war, and only then decide who will lead the post-war, stabilized and gradually rebuilding the destroyed infrastructure of Syria.


Assad and Arab countries


No matter how the West protested, in Syria, the opinions of the United States and other Western countries are considered less and less. In the Middle East and in Syria in particular, there are other players - the same Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran, each of which defends its own interests. Moreover, now, against the background of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, events in Syria are somehow receding into the background. Why does the West need the Syrian elections if it is not able to contribute to the establishment of peace in Palestine, to influence the allied Israel or the Palestinian groups, which at one time also listened to America?

There is no common position in the Arab world regarding the future of Syria. In Egypt, the attitude towards Bashar al-Assad is quite loyal: the current president of Egypt, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, understands perfectly well that Bashar al-Assad is the same secular authoritarian leader, and they have common enemies - religious extremism and terrorism. The UAE has also changed its attitude towards Syria: Abu Dhabi opened an embassy in Damascus, and now relatively neutral relations are maintained between the countries.

In addition, the named Arab states are not interested in strengthening Turkey in the region, and Bashar al-Assad is one of the main obstacles to this. So far, Turkey is bogged down in Syria, and Damascus is diverting a significant part of Ankara's military, financial, information and organizational resources. Probably for the same reason, Saudi Arabia may not strongly protest against Assad. Of course, Riyadh could never have been suspected of sympathizing with the Baathists in Syria, but now the choice is not very diverse - the Saudis also do not want the growth of Turkish influence in the Arab East.

But Saudi Arabia has an obvious obstacle to showing greater loyalty to Assad - the Syrian regime is closely tied to Iran, and Iran is an even greater threat to Saudi interests than Turkey. And yet Riyadh has not obstructed Syria for a long time, including allowing the passage of Syrian trucks through its territory, and did not object to the opening of the UAE embassies, and then Bahrain in Damascus, although both monarchies are in allied relations with the KSA.

Finally, Iraq and Lebanon have always been loyal to Damascus, Syria has good relations with another large Arab country - Algeria. Thus, it was impossible to speak of the total isolation of Syria in the Arab world even a few years ago, but today the mood in the League of Arab States towards Assad is becoming more and more loyal. Indeed, why call for his overthrow if there is no other alternative? Almost all regional players are tired of the endless chaos in Syria.

The consequences of the elections for Syria and the world as a whole


There is no doubt about the results of the upcoming presidential elections in Syria. Bashar al-Assad will win a convincing victory on them, and it is possible that even the administrative resource will not need to be used for this, or at least it will be used on an insignificant scale. Simply vote for Assad will be those territories that are already controlled by the Syrian government forces.

Kurdish areas, as well as areas where Turkish or American troops rule, are a separate issue. Bashar al-Assad will win the elections with an absolute majority of votes, and then nothing will change. Russia will continue to support the current Syrian regime, the Arab countries of the Middle East will probe the situation and maneuver between loyalty and criticism, Turkey will oppose Assad, and the United States and Europe will adhere to the previous policy of sanctions and strong rejection.

At the same time, the elections will also have a great propaganda effect: they demonstrate that, despite a decade of civil war, Syria has retained its statehood and such an important attribute as the presidential election. Bashar al-Assad became one of the few rulers of the Middle East who managed not only to survive the Arab Spring in his post, but also to remain in power.

For Russia, the holding of presidential elections in Syria and the victory of Bashar al-Assad in them are evidence of the success of foreign policy in the Middle East. Indeed, the fact that Assad is there and he goes to the polls is a very big merit of Moscow. In fact, it was Russia that did not allow the current Syrian statehood to disappear, did not allow the West to completely destroy Syria as a centralized state.

    Assad's parents, in my opinion, gave their son not only a good education, but also an excellent upbringing. And as a politician and as a person, I like Assad. And his wife is a fine fellow.

            So only the collective West is to blame for the civil war in Syria? Yes, in the divorce of a married couple, both spouses are always to blame. In a strong state, under wise management, no one from outside will ever be able to organize a civil war. Such phenomena occur only due to internal systemic contradictions. External forces always play a secondary role. The "boat" is always rocked by the ruling elite, most often because of its irrepressible greed, and Syria is no exception.

                Well, why are you posting these pictures to me? Is it that foreign forces arranged privatization for the president's friends and relatives? Was it foreign countries who staged a massive impoverishment of the peasants, creating fertile ground for the spread of ISIS? No, it was all done by the ruling regime, today's civil war in Syria is only a consequence of a stupid domestic policy, which the enemies of Syria took advantage of.

                      The revolution in Ingushetia was inevitable, regardless of the personality of the king. It's ripe, you know. It happened and gave the world hope for a just world order in the future. The selfish ideology of the individualist, no matter how implanted and cultivated, is destructive in essence and leads to a dead end. Socialism and, in the future, communism, based on technical progress, the future of mankind. A little bit of truth will have to be cleaned, seriously, not like last time.
                      And Assad is neither worse nor better than others, present and past, in Syria and across the planet. Stalins and Napoleons are unique phenomena in history.

                        It is in Russia, as the center of the whole event, and other peoples also have it. Socialism was real and very effective, which, of course, was in the throat of the champions of the insolent Saxon-Jewish order of the world. The world of disunited private traders, the world of predators and egoists. The upbringing of a new person made it possible to create a society of equal collectivists with a high level of civic responsibility and selfless service to society and people. It was impossible to refute.
                        The lag of a century was overcome in two five-year plans, it was restored, destroyed in the Second World War, in the shortest possible time. Of course, the percentage of individuals with a baryzha psychology remained in the USSR and even more in the CMEA countries, Geyrop, what to do, but they fought with them. If it was not possible to re-educate, they erased. But every year it is less and less active, plus a Masonic foothold at hand, actively corrupting the youth, plus the Republics of Central Asia and Transcaucasia, which are not brought to a "common denominator". We failed, last time.
                        For a renewed socialism, there is a platform and there are people. Russia has always lived as a community, the mentality is like that. Draw conclusions from past mistakes and everything will work out.

                    Unfortunately, human life is limited in time. Stalin knew how and corrected the country if he had more time. Then it got worse and worse. Geniuses of this magnitude are rare. And yet there was an opportunity. It was not necessary to mumble about Marxism-Lenenism, but to carefully look at people, what they live with, what they breathe. Didn't start the money-grubbing wormhole and uproot it as it came in. How did F.E. Dzerzhinsky and L.P. Beria.
                    And criminal lawlessness cannot be avoided when state power collapses. Anytime and anywhere.

            You are right, but not in everything.
            Yes, of course, these countries have huge problems. Including with the rotten elite to one degree or another.
            But do not forget that states like Syria are not even "developing" yet. For one reason or another, they are mainly at the first stages of the creation of any kind of strong statehood.
            In addition, one should not forget that there was an economic crisis before the beginning of the events of the "Arab Spring". Besides, any state has its own recessions.
            Yes, a situation may arise when many citizens of a certain situation have no choice but to take up arms.
            But this does not mean that this is the best way out or that it will lead to an improvement in the situation.
            Moreover, this does not mean that external forces have the right to intervene in the way that the West interferes in the affairs of Arab (and not only) countries.
            Such internal problems and contradictions need to be helped to solve, and not to bring about a civil war.

        Many countries have the same situations. Countries like Syria have a host of governance and elite problems. They have a long way to go. Just as before relative stability, the European countries went through the period of wars.
        This does not mean that it is necessary to lead to a bloody civil war or to push for it.
        And in many cases, not even civil, but inter-clan strife.

        In the current realities, a civil war begins on "internal yeast" in absolutely fantastic (albeit possible) cases. if the power unit is in perfect harmony with power, it’s generally hard with performance. If the socio-economic situation is even neutral, even more so. The prerequisites are being created. And they are usually created from outside. So somebody needs it. Why was the Arab Spring needed at all? Why and to whom? That, after 2003, everything settled down on the BV? Maybe Palestine has reconciled with Israel? The systems approach has deep goals. When it all began, Russia was not yet such a negative factor in politics. We were only blamed for Georgia and Munich. But now, with a blue eye, we are quite calmly discussing Assad's guilt and even the "destructive role of Russia." No, let's do it properly. Once Assad is presented with some mistakes in domestic politics, then we take these mistakes, analyze them in detail and estimate with reference to the cultural plein air of a given country: enough to start a meat grinder with an Islamist bias or so-so. Since we are talking about the destructive role of Russia, then we show where, when, how many times. And where, when and how many times, on the contrary, the return of stability in the region (no shooting, the infrastructure is working, there is a vector of restoration). We came as an alternative to watermelon-free that the West was doing. Naturally, the result of the "contra" from Russia can not like it because it goes against the goals and objectives. And yes, do not care about the opinion of the "experts" of the EU and the USA. They blow the tune of those who lit the region and slammed 500000 Iraqis for a test tube of washing powder.

      The 10-year war in Syria, not because the president rules the wrong way there, but because he is not loyal to the State Department) if Russia hadn’t gotten involved in the Syrian showdown, now there would be no Russian bases there and gas and oil pipelines would run to the EU in spite of the economy Russia. and Russia's activity in the Syrian case makes it also a key player in the entire Middle East, containing Iran as well.

    According to the Syrian constitution adopted in 2012, only a Muslim over 40 years of age who has Syrian citizenship and has lived in the country for at least ten years can be a candidate for the presidency.

    Here are the Nazi notes. A Syrian Christian cannot be the president of a country. By the way, the Assad himself too. Alawites are not entirely Muslim. They drink vodka, which is taboo in Islam.

    By the way, 21 years ago, Assad became president in violation of the current constitution. That eats illegally. Then the law prohibited a person under the age of 40 from holding the presidency.

    However, how this can be done in the context of the ongoing civil war, the opposition does not say.

    They are reporting. Elections in countries affected by civil war have been held multiple times.

    What is the point in postponing or canceling elections if there is no new constitution in nature?

    An excuse for allowing the dictator to sit in power for 21 years.

    Bashar al-Assad was able to maintain relatively good relations with Russia, and today Moscow has no reason not to support him.

    Hands up to the elbows in blood is not the foundation?

    And this is reasonable: first you need to end the civil war, and only then decide who will lead the post-war, stabilized and gradually rebuilding the destroyed infrastructure of Syria.

    Assad is the reason for the civil war that will not end while he is at the helm.

    At the same time, the elections will also have a great propaganda effect: they demonstrate that, despite a decade of civil war, Syria has retained its statehood and such an important attribute as the presidential election.

    Syria has lost its statehood. America and Turkey, on the one hand, and Iran, on the other, rule over there. And the Assad himself rests on Russian bayonets.

    In fact, it was Russia that did not allow the current Syrian statehood to disappear, did not allow the West to completely destroy Syria as a centralized state.

    Syria does not exist as a centralized state.

    I personally wish the Assad many years of rule. Under him, Syria ceased to pose a threat to us, and another 2 decents of his brilliant rule will cease the existence of Syria itself.

If Assad wins the civil war, and everything goes exactly to this, then he will be elected for life as a winner.

The inhabitants of the Palestinian autonomy are not citizens of Israel, in contrast to the Russian autonomous regions. ... I will try to convey it in a simpler way: in Syria there is absolutely clear discrimination on religious grounds. The LAW states that only a Muslim can be president. there is no such discrimination in the law in Israel. any Israeli citizen can run

      Professor, do not you think it strange to talk about legality, illegality, elections, shmybora in these conditions? In the conditions of war, even in the United States "presidential rule". And if you consider that elections in other countries, by and large, are needed by the United States as one of the tools to crush it for itself - but do not care what they say
      in the world. You spit sometimes (and you do the right thing), right?
      And "Assad on Russian bayonets" - so you won't get bayonets on the regiment. In many European (and not only) countries, there are an order of magnitude more American bayonets. This is how the world works. Soon the Chinese bayonets will spread throughout the world.

And finally, the monarch is the Supreme ruler of the Church of England and can appoint bishops and archbishops (that is, the head of not only secular, but also spiritual authority, which is not found anywhere in the world, even in Iran).
              ANY PERSON IN THE WORLD DOES NOT HAVE A GREATER CONCENTRATION OF AUTHORITIES. Even the Korean Juche, portrayed by the "democratic media" as an example of a dictator, nervously smokes in the hallway.

    The Arab Spring has brought about significant changes in the policies of the Arab states, both in the Middle East and North Africa. To deny this is pointless and useless. How useless to deny the history of the emergence of ISIS as a destabilizing factor in the region.
    "The fight against international terrorism" began not in 2011, but much earlier. And it led to the physical destruction of the leaders of two rather powerful states - Iraq and Libya. But what happened to these countries, here is the answer to the question "How to hold elections in the conditions of a civil war and the occupation of a part of the country's territory by the so-called neighbors and other overseas peacekeepers ...
    To this "tune" about the fight against bloody dictators, as they like to explain in the "civilized West", a "front of democracy" is being created under the auspices of the United States in the person of its current president, who introduced such a "media dictatorship" in his country that talk about any rights, it makes no sense. Donald Trump is already tired of laughing ...

        The frequency of changes in power is not a guarantee of a country's prosperity. Especially in conditions of both martial law and pre-war. Or should the events in country 404 set us up in a complacent mood, and eternal sanctions and anti-Russian hysteria are a thing of the distant past?
        Today, of course, is not May 1941. But the European countries have passed the stage of today's Munich a long time ago. Therefore, I believe that the change in the leadership of the country of the Russian Federation at the current moment will be not only unjustified, but also harmful. And even criminal.

          I do not think.
          In my opinion "1984" is a reference book in the Presidential Administration. Guide to action and the ideal of government.
          Irremovability of power is a guarantee of stagnation and decline of the country. There is an exception, but this option has already been chosen by Lee Kuan Yew, and we have our own Pu ... t.
          The events in Ukraine and the anti-Russian hysteria are only good for the authorities. We are surrounded by enemies! Maidan! Everyone wants to take my charm away!
          You can drive any dissent under repression, because we are in a besieged fortress, enemies are all around.
          The West in the same way frightens its inhabitants with a terrible threat from the East. The military weapons lobby in the west rubs its sweaty palms.
          Sanctions? Paranoia. They "benefit" us, but we are outraged that someone dares to impose sanctions against our moneybags, which are in our favor.
          Munich you have, as I understand it, for a catchphrase.
          Whoever makes power irreplaceable makes the revolution inevitable.
          Cutting off arbitrarily from the very possibility of being elected to government bodies and to the highest position in the state, including, as well as the use of the so-called "administrative resource" for the sake of one political party and one person, there are obvious signs of usurpation of power and violation of paragraphs 3., 4. Article 3 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
          Hence, what is criminal is another question.
          It's a question of time.

            In fact, after such words, the words of the last Minister of Finance of the USSR V. Pavlov come to mind, who just said "Let me steer!" The State Emergency Committee gave him such an opportunity. There were many tokma candidates-revolutionaries, one even had his hands shaking with happiness during the press conference. And nobody wanted to steer.
            And it all ended in zilch. The country asked ... whether. Another one who wants to steer, a supporter of the regular turnover of power, has come to power. I flew to Washington, sang "God Save America ..."
            In March 1917, supporters of democracy and the turnover of power had already come to power. But they didn't want to answer for anything. That is why they were called the Provisional Government ...

The power hasn't changed for TOO LONG, here's the result.

                I will answer with the words attributed to Stolypin that we do not need great upheavals caused by the desire to change the current government at any cost, if only other people come to power.
                Again, I will refer to the precedent of the neighboring under-country, in which the president has already been elected twice. And there is essentially the same people, with the same mentality.
                We don't need Maidan. Maidanutyh we already have enough.

                  Maydanutyh, except for those who on any occasion yell "mayda-ah-ah-a-n!" we do not exist.
                  Maidan requires at least five conditions, each of which is necessary, but even the sum of all but one, any of them, is insufficient.
                  So.

                  1. Idea.
                  There was such an idea in ukraine This idea is expressed in the slogans "Ukraine is not russia", "ukraine is tse europa", "ukraine is on top of the mustache" There is no such idea in Russia
                  Therefore Maidan in Russia is impossible.

                  2. Financing.
                  It was in Ukraine. In Russia, such funding is blocked.
                  Therefore Maidan in Russia is impossible.

                  3. Infantry.
                  Those who will take forceful actions against the authorities. Militants. In Ukraine, this is the right sector and the like. In Ukraine, such organizations were prepared and taken care of by the authorities themselves for many years. In Russia, for the organization of "Russian jogging" - administrative, and the slogan "Russian means sober" is recognized as extremist. There is no Maidan infantry in Russia.
                  Therefore Maidan in Russia is impossible.

                  4. Legalization.
                  Representation in government bodies.
                  In Ukraine, representatives of the Maidan were present in the Rada. Yatsenyuk, Svoboda Tyagniboka, Lyashko, etc. In Russia, there are no political forces in the power structures that support street protests.
                  Therefore Maidan in Russia is impossible.

                  5. Limp power
                  The government, which is afraid of blood, which looks back on the opinion of the West, was in Ukraine.
                  There is no such power in Russia.
                  Therefore Maidan in Russia is impossible.

                  Try to prove the opposite.

                  The mentality of the Little Russians and its differences from the mentality of the Great Russians is a byword and a theme for many anecdotes.

                  The precedent of the neighboring country proves that I am right.
                  UkrAina has not collapsed despite the fact that after the Maidan the president has already changed twice. There, in general, now there is a buffoon in the kingdom and nothing - has not yet moved ...
                  UkrAina did not disintegrate despite the claims of our propaganda, they say, if not Putin, then Russia will collapse.
                  UkrAina did not even freeze, despite our (and mine including) expectations of 7-5 years ago.

                  Stolypin was not twenty years old. He only dreamed of them, but they have already passed from our current government.
                  Not wanting to change power, you will inevitably wait for shocks.
                  For whoever makes power irreplaceable makes the revolution inevitable.
                  The change of power was invented for this purpose, so that there would be no revolutions.

                    It's the same story in Germany - the parties in power come and go. And the power is the same. The power of capital.
                    China followed the same path, only leaving the CCP's power over capital, both private and public.
                    Russia in 1991 also fit into this system. And if over the past 20 years there have been no competitors for the current president, then who is to blame? There is a well-functioning system of elections, and, by the way, direct ones, all popular, in contrast to the electoral systems of the USA or Germany. Go ahead and vote for your candidates. And don't say that our elections are not the same. We are very far from the American elections by mail ...

                      The changeability of personalities in power allows you to protect yourself from bronze and stagnation.
                      "Change of signboard" allows you to keep the course stability
                      The power of capital has an alternative, it is the power of the bureaucracy. The nomenclature has already brought the USSR to collapse. Do you want repetition at the level of Russia? How do you propose to remove capital from power? The revolution?
                      If you are satisfied with the current government in Russia, and "Russia in 1991 also fit into this system," then what does not suit you in the system that has been preserved and protected by the current government for more than 20 years?
                      There were competitors, but they were either defamed or eliminated. Propaganda on the maintenance of power has created a myth about the absence of an alternative to this very power.
                      There is no need to talk about elections - it’s not even funny anymore. Voting by mail in the United States does not justify our tricks, just as the pseudo-argument "and in America they lynch blacks" does not justify our domestic arbitrariness.
                      What candidates can I vote for if "my candidates" are not allowed to participate in the elections on completely far-fetched pretexts or openly arbitrary court decisions?

    Bashar al-Assad has caused problems for himself. The Arab Spring in Syria was not the cause of his problems, but a consequence of his rule.
    Got power from my daddy's hands. He brought his people to the handle. Half a million killed, 100 toil in dungeons, 000 million refugees.
    He is an Alawite and is hated by the local Sunites / Shiites, etc. Now, his power is based solely on the desire of the Russian Federation to have several of its air and naval bases in the BV.

    Bashar, when he got into the affairs of the statesmen, realized that although he received 97% of the votes of his citizens in the referendum, there was no reason for him to turn a dug into Israel - he had neither strength, nor authority in the BV, nor decent allies. And in 2003, when he began to help Saddam Hussein, decent people in general stopped greeting him.
    When the war ended in Iraq, foolishly, he began to support terrorists there. Well, what did this turn out for him later, no need to tell?

    Does anyone wonder that he is the favorite in the next elections?
    There is not a single leader in Syria who could oppose him with anything.
    The alternative is thugs.
    Who needs such hemorrhoids?
    Naturally, Assad will receive the majority of the votes.
    By the way, even before the civil war itself, he had the support of the people of almost 98%.

    In fact, Israel is much more beneficial to a cowardly, but pragmatic and completely predictable ophthalmologist who has been in power for so many years than brave, but completely reckless bandits of any color, shade or smell.

    I will support the Professor.
    I wish Bashar Khafizovich health and good luck. They will still be useful to him. hi
