It said that the presidential election would not be legitimate in an atmosphere where forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad killed, wounded and kidnapped many Syrian people, and accused the regime of forcing people to take part in "nonsense elections" to create a false level of participation.The Syrian Interior Ministry announced that 15 million citizens are eligible to vote in the election in Syria. The Syrian Human Rights Network has claimed, however, that out of this total, 6.5 million people have left their homes and 3.5 million have fled to other countries, meaning that over half of the electorate would not vote in the election.
