Ghalib Qindeel: The elections and the rise of the Syrian strength
May 7 is the day on which Vladimir Putin will be giving his inauguration speech as the president of the Russian Federation while at the head of the Russian nationalistic and global revival that is alarming the Western colonial alliance.
That same day will witness the Syrian legislative elections after President Bashar al-Assad decided to proceed with the reform and renewal process in parallel to the fighting of terrorism and the deployment of steadfastness in the face of the global war led by the Western colonial alliance with the participation of regional powers, namely the agents of the West in the Gulf, in Turkey and Lebanon. In short, it is the date of the rise of the independent and resisting Syrian strength.
Firstly, the legislative elections will mark the peak of major constitutional and legal transformations led by President Al-Assad to instate a new pluralistic political regime in the country, one whose content was conveyed by the constitution which was recognized by the vast majority of the Syrian people during the referendum. It also marks the peak of the determination to stage the elections, which expresses a strong national will in leading the political transformation in the country and abstaining from succumbing to the terrorist sabotage plan being led by Syria’s enemies who are providing the powerful gangs with funds, weapons and a political cover.
Secondly, the course of the Syrian events has clearly revealed that the wave of terrorism has always lurked political reform in order to prevent its implementation. The powers involved in the plan to destroy the Syrian strength and prevent national political dialogue tried - through the suicide attacks which targeted Damascus, Aleppo and Edlib and through the consecutive assassination operations - to sabotage the electoral process. This reached the point where the gangs addressed public threats saying that they will kill the candidates. Despite that, the number of those running in the May 7 elections exceeded 7,000 over 250 parliamentary seats, which means that an average of 28 candidates are running over each parliamentary seat. This ratio is quite high at the level of participation in political life, conveying political and representational plurality within the Syrian society, whether from within the new political parties or among the social figures and dignitaries.
Thirdly, following the elections, Syria will be entering a new phase at the level of the restructuring of the authorities’ constitutional institutions, starting with the new parliament and the formation of an expanded national partnership government in a climate of media and political plurality. The winners and the losers in these elections will be part of the internal political action and we will witness the emergence of new and additional movements, gatherings and political parties during the next stage. May 7, will mark an important turn at the level of Syria’s recovery from the crisis and the strengthening of the foundations of the new stage in Syria’s national life. The next stages will be dedicated to the handling of the repercussions of the global war and the containment of its effects through the enhancement of national unity, the reconstruction of what was destroyed by the terrorist gangs, the ending of social and economic marginalization in some rural areas and the drafting of the new economic inclinations whose headlines were recently drawn up by President Al-Assad.
Fourthly, the revival of the Syrian strength will be the main axis of the national solidarity expressed by the Syrians throughout the past year. The Syrian national state will thus liquidate the pits of terrorism and dismantle the sabotage networks established by the global alliance, which will be a long process that will require the Syrians to show steadfastness and patience and to rally around the state, its institutions and its army until stability is fully restored in the entire country, following the dangerous earthquake it has vanquished.
The resisting, independent and renewed Syria with the will of its people and the leadership of its resisting president will conquer via the ballot boxes while defying terrorism and threats with death to ensure a new life for a great nation which has always constituted the unique jewel of the East.
