Syria's Supreme Constitutional Court announced Monday the names of the three final candidates for the country's May 26 presidential elections.
The initial list reported on May 3 remains unchanged, including the names of Abdullah Salloum Abdullah, Bashar Hafez al-Assad, and Mahmoud Ahmed Mari, the head of the Court, Mohammad Jihad al-Laham, said at a press briefing.
Jihad al-Laham stated that the complaint requests submitted by six applicants were rejected because they failed to provide official documents proving their arguments.
Jihad al-Laham said that the court works under the Constitution and the Law, taking into account documentation issued by the relevant authorities and discarding rumors and claims not proven through documentation.
