Although the Western media reports regarding the Presidential elections currently taking place in Syria attempt to portray the event as a “sham election” or nothing more than a political stunt, evidence coming out of the country seem to show quite the opposite.

Indeed, the elections, which include Assad as one candidate among three, are experiencing widespread participation from Syrians inside the country as well as those who have been displaced in the region and around the world.

For instance, in a recent article from the Associated Press, reports of Syrian refugees in Lebanon wishing to vote (mostly for Assad) were so ready to enter the polling booth in the Syrian embassy in Lebanon, that a virtual riot ensued, resulting in Lebanese security beating the voters with batons and sticks.
