(NEW YORK) -- Syria will hold presidential elections on June 3, despite the raging civil war believed to have killed around 150,000 people. Candidates have until May 1 to register. Syrians living abroad will have the opportunity to cast their votes on May 28. Many expect Bashar al-Assad, whose term ends on July 17, to announce his bid for reelection for another seven years in office.
