That figure might increase over the next two days if establishing polling stations in certain areas is deemed necessary, Zamrik told at a press briefing.

He explained that the demographic distribution of the population was taken into account to locate the polling stations, so that citizens can easily access them.

As he stated, the city of Damascus will have 1,870 polling stations where, as in other provinces, preventive Covid-19 measures have been taken, in addition to guaranteeing envelopes, ballots, secret ink and secret voting.

The results of the elections held abroad will be combined with those to be held in the country on Wednesday, May 26, and then the final results will be announced, the head of the Electoral Commission said. On Wednesday, Syrians in the country will vote among three candidates, and the winner will rule the country in the next seven years.

These are the second multi-party elections after the ones held in 2014, when incumbent President Bashar al-Assad won more than 88 percent of the votes.
