With Syria's presidential election around the corner, a group of Syrian expats in Australia have expressed support for incumbent President Bashar al-Assad who is seeking re-election. The crowd held banners and placards in support of Assad. They also signed a Pro-Assad petition which will be sent to the High Constitutional Court of Syria. The expatriates also symbolically voted for their preferred president. Syrian people will go to the polls on June 3 to choose their president amid violence that's ravaged their country for more than three years. However, Syrian expats are deprived of their right to vote in some countries like Australia since the Syrian Embassy there has been forced to shut down since 2012.
