Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Saudi Gazette report

BRUSSELS — Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States on Tuesday denounced the Assad regime’s decision to hold an election outside of the framework described in UN Security Council resolution, warning that Syria’s May 26 presidential election will neither be free nor fair.

In a joint statement just a day before the polls, the foreign ministers said that and we support the voices of all Syrians, including civil society organizations and the Syrian opposition, who have condemned the electoral process as illegitimate.

The ministers in their statement referred to the UN resolution, which calls for elections to be held under UN supervision maintaining the highest international standards of transparency and accountability.

"For an election to be credible, all Syrians should be allowed to participate, including internally displaced Syrians, refugees, and members of the diaspora, in a safe and neutral environment," the ministers stressed in the statement.

They added: "Without these elements, this fraudulent election does not represent any progress toward a political settlement. We urge the international community to unequivocally reject this attempt by the Assad regime to regain legitimacy without ending its grave human rights violations and meaningfully participating in the UN-facilitated political process to end the conflict,"

The foreign ministers reiterated their firm support for the UN special envoy for Syria’s efforts to promote a political settlement, which protects the future prosperity and the rights of all Syrians, including the right to vote in free and fair elections.
