The initial list reported on May 3 remains unchanged and includes the names of Abdullah Salloum Abdullah, Bashar Hafez al-Assad and Mahmoud Ahmed Mari, the head of the Court, Mohammad Jihad al-Laham, said at a press briefing.

Jihad al-Laham stated that the complaint requests submitted by six applicants were rejected because they do not include official documents that prove their arguments.

The court works by virtue of the Constitution and the Law, takes into account documentation issued by the relevant authorities and does not pay attention to rumors and claims not proven with documents, he said.

Under Syria’s Constitution approved in the 2011 popular referendum, the president may only serve two seven-year terms.

These will be the second multi-party presidential elections in Syria. The first of them were held in 2014, in which current President Bashar Al-Assad won more than 88 percent of the votes.
