SSNP Supports Bashar al-Assad’s Presidential Nomination

Leader of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) Ali Haidar declared that his party supports the nomination request of Dr. Bashar al-Assad to run for presidency as this is his right being a Syrian citizen.

“No external or any other forces are allowed to interfere in naming who have or don’t have the right to do that as the act of nomination is a Syrian internal affair par excellence and the right of every citizen without exception,” Haidar told the reporters in a press conference on Tuesday the 6th of May 2014.
Haidar announced that his party was withdrawing from the Popular Front for Change and Liberation over discrepancy in positions towards the presidential election.
While voicing the Syrian Social Nationalist Party’s outright rejection of confusing attitudes towards the election, being a constitutional event, with those stressing the necessity to reform this event, Haidar made it clear that his party is not on the same page with all the forces of the Front and not just with the Popular Will Party over this issue.
