Election officials in the government-held Mezze neighborhood of Damascus count votes from yesterday's Syrian presidential election at a polling station in the Real Estate Bank. Video includes interviews with election officials.
Abdul Latif Ahmad, Head of Polling Station:
“The election started at 7 in the morning and the turn out was huge. The whole process went easily and smoothly and lasted until 7 in the evening and then it was extended until 12 midnight. At 12 midnight we closed the boxes and sealed them with a plastic seal. Then we opened the boxes and counted the envelopes. We placed the counted envelopes into cases, each case contains 100 envelopes. After that we opened each case and counted the number of votes each candidate got according to the voting ballots. It was very easy going”.
Ezzeddin Ismail, Supervisor of the Counting Process:
“The voting process started at 7 in the morning. The turn out was really big, so we required a five hour extension until 12 midnight. Thank God the first election in 60 years went very smoothly. The Syrian population expressed their ambitions and hopes about the president they want to lead them into the future and everything went well. Now that the voting is finished, we have started the counting process”.
