(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Syrian Supreme Constitutional Court announced Saturday the final list of the candidates who will run for the country's top post in the upcoming elections.

In a press conference, the Court's Spokesperson Majid Khadra said that the final list of presidential candidates included the incumbent President Dr. Bashar Hafez al-Assad, Maher Abdul-Hafiz Hajjar, and Hassan Abdullah Al-Nouri.

Al-Assad who has been in power since 2000 is widely tipped to win the June 3 election. The other two candidates are unlikely to pose a serious challenge.

Khadra said that the approved candidates can start their electioneering as of Sunday May 11th, 2014.

He noted that the Court studiethe complaints submitted by Ahmad Ali Kasia, Ali Hassan al-Hassan, Bashir Mohammad al-Balah, Khaled Abdo al-Kridi, Samih Mikhail Mousa and Sami Ahmad Moalla, and the court concluded that their candidacy applications do not comply with the conditions stipulated by the law and the constitution.


After announcing the initial list of the approved presidential candidates, the court received six complaints by the aforementioned persons.

Candidates need to get written approvals from at least 35 MPs each, otherwise their applications would be dismissed.

Speaker of the People's Assembly announced that Syrians living abroad can vote at the Syrian Embassies on May 28 and Syrians inside #Syria can vote on June 3rd, 2014.
