Syria has 11,967,611 eligible voters of whom, according to the minister of interior:
- 95.86% participated in the referendum (11,472,157).
- 97.62 % said YES to Bashar's "reelection".
- 0.171% said NO to Bashar.
- 2.2% made invalid entries.
Very impressive were it not so absurd. They could have at least doctored the numbers to make them look a little more realistic. Do the self-congratulating Baathists really think anyone buys this?
