DAMASCUS, April 13. /TASS/. More than 7,000 polling stations opened in Syria at 07:00 local time (coinciding with Moscow time) amid tight security measures.

The elections are held in 13 out of 15 provinces. Raqqa and Idlib provinces are the exception as they are controlled by gunmen from Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (both outlawed in Russia). Refugees from these two regions will have a possibility to vote at places of their temporary domicile.

The election to the People’s Council of Syria takes place on the multi-party basis in accordance with the constitution adopted at the referendum on 26 February 2012. Syria’s parliament consists of 250 members elected for a four-year term through universal, direct and secret ballot voting.
