MOSCOW, April 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The Syrian opposition will not take part in parliamentary elections if the authorities fail to ensure a transparent ballot, Qadri Jamil from the Syrian Popular Front for Liberation and Change said on Friday.
“We want fair elections. If the authorities do not guarantee a transparent ballot, we will not take part in it,” he said. Jamil added that the Front would learn how popular it was with the Syrians on May 7. “If the election is not fair, we will not work in the new parliament even if we win,” he said.
Jamil admitted serious disagreements with the policy of Syrian President Bashar al-Asad. “We insist on the elimination of economic problems and the recognition of the people’s wish to democracy. If the authorities reject the dialog, that would be an act of betrayal,” he said.
The delegation head called for analyzing mistakes, freeing innocent people from prisons, paying compensations to the injured and punishing persons responsible for bloodshed.
