Daily Times, United Arab Emirates: - President Bashar Al-Assad has submitted a nomination application for the post of President of the Republic, and he will be competing with Muhannad Nadim Shaban and Muhammad Muwaffaq Sawan, according to the Syrian news agency "SANA".

In the Syrian presidential elections scheduled to take place on May 26, 2021, each of: Abdullah Salloum Abdullah, Muhammad Firas Yassin Rajouh, and Faten Ali Nahar have also run requests to the court to nominate themselves for the post of President of the Republic.

To formally accept applications, each candidate must have the support of at least 35 of the 250 members of the People's Assembly, in which the ruling Baath Party enjoys an overwhelming majority.

According to the Syrian constitution, the Supreme Constitutional Court continues to receive requests for a period of 10 days, starting from Monday, that is, until April 28, 2021.

One of the conditions for applying for the elections is that the candidate has resided in Syria continuously during the past ten years, which closes the door to the possibility of any opposition residing outside the country running.

Al-Assad won the last elections in June 2014, by more than 88 percent, and was challenged by two unknown candidates, in a move described by the opposition at the time as a "cosmetic".
