The Foreign Ministry said Monday that France and Germany intend to prevent Syrians living in their countries from voting in Syria's presidential election, expected to return President Bashar Assad to power.More than 150,000 people have been killed in Syria's conflict, which began with anti-government protests in mid-March 2011 .Voting in Syria will only be held in government-held territory, and Syrians who fled through unofficial border crossings will be barred from voting abroad.Syria's opposition and much of the international community have criticised Damascus for its decision to hold the presidential vote, dismissing the ballot as a "farce".
