On July 17, Syrian President Bashar Assad was sworn in for a fourth seven-year presidential term in the war-torn country.

Assad garnered 95.1% of the vote in the May 26 presidential election, in which officials said turnout was 78.6% of some 18 million registered voters. The elections were described by the West and Assad’s opponents as illegitimate.

The President was sworn in on the constitution and the Koran in the presence of more than 600 guests, including ministers, businessmen, academics, journalists, artists, senior military officers and veteran soldiers.

In his inauguration speech, Assad said that the elections “have proven the strength of popular legitimacy that the people have conferred to the state”.

“[They] have discredited the declarations of Western officials on the legitimacy of the state, the constitution and the homeland,” the President added, referring to millions of Syrians who took part in the elections.

Assad went on to touch on several internal and external challenges facing Syria today, including the unprecedented economic crisis.

The President also vowed, yet again, to liberate Syrian territory occupied by the US and Turkish forces with support from his main allies.

“We have set our sight on liberating the rest of our land from the terrorists and their Turkish and American sponsors,” Assad said. “We are confident in the role of friends such as Iran and Russia, whose stand with us had a great impact on the liberation [of our land].”

A day earlier, the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria warned that militants based in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib are plotting a fake chemical attack on the day of the president’s inauguration. However, no incidents were reported during the inauguration ceremony.

Assad begins his fourth term as the President of Syria upended by Western pressure, which failed to achieve anything aside from inciting a destructive war.

What was the percentage that Elected Old-Demented-Joe again? and never mind that some mailed ballots were said to be fake. Yet, the US will tell us how Assad is Unpopular.

And the the French + German Regimes prevented + hindered the Syrian War Refugees to vote…but always ‘preaching’ about democracy and stuff like that…the totaly undemocratic EU, their EU-Junta [unelected! Commission + Council] and their phony Apparatschiks as well.

The Objective

He can rule his part of Syria as long as no Turkish troops are directly attacked. He hasn’t forgotten Erdogan’s threat to take war right to Assad’s presidential palace in Damascus should any more Turkish soldiers be killed by Assad or his allies. They seem to have taken that threat seriously because More than one year after the last incident, no attempt has been made to liberate Idlib.
I love Erdogan. A man of his words. He drew a redline and his enemies obey despite all the threats.

Realno

The truth is: elections in Syria are way more democratic then those in America.

Unfortunately you are right, Erdogan managed to stand against Putin both in Syria and in the Caucasus, even USA now is totally focused against China, they don’t bother anymore about Russia

TomSawyer

The majority of Syrians hate him – the seed of his removal has already been planted and will succeed

Assad is more popular than Biden. I hope he does retake all of Syria, including the Golan Heights.

Religion divide people. No to religion

Congratulations on presidential election..
I do not believe in religion..
But I can tell 1 thing .
Religion divided people.
American has no right to be in Syria…
Turkey has no right to be in Syria.
UN. Has no right to be in Syria.
But alqaeda must be annihilate and aswell Iran must leave Syria.
Only Russia has a right to be in Syria…
I am not a pro Russia.
But I see the legitimacy of Russia beeing in Syria.
I Don’t see any legitimacy of 🇺🇸 or Iran as beeing in Syria…
Love you all …
Long live democracy..

Very nice mister Assad I wish you best of luck and success in your 4th term!

kotromanic

Well he should perhaps first ask putin if he will allow it cause everytime assad started to take back something from the turk’s russia pulled back their support in the past.

It seem’s that russia like’s the current version of syria. divided, week and dependent.
As long there is war in syria no iranian nor saudi gas will go through it to europe and
compete with the russian north stream and turk stream gas.
