So, the Iranians think Assad should stand for election in a new government?
there should be an election under UN supervision that includes all Syrians; those in Syrian government controlled land, those in rebel controlled land, those in exile in, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Europe, Canada and in Europe. They should all vote. All should also be allowed to stand for election and that should include Bashar Assad.
The argument is made by the Borg (led by or leading Obama) that Assad has lost his "legitimacy" (always a tricky thing to establish). If "legitimacy" in this case means the consent of the governed, well, pilgrims, a fully supervised election, would establish whether or not that is true.
Assad won an election like that a few years back, so...
Now, I fully understand that parties perhaps unknown will try to rig the election using the UN as an instrument. Well, lets see them do that while we all watch. Let's see it...
IS and the other jihadi groups are not interested in the consent of the governed, but the US supposedly is so interested.
Let's do it! pl
