Syrian President Bashar al-Assad shakes a supporter's hand as he walks with his wife Asma in Damascus, 27 May 2007. Syrians were voting today in a no-contest referendum to give Assad another seven years at the helm of a Middle East regional heavyweight despite an opposition boycott. With parliament unanimously approving the candidature of the 41-year-old Assad for a second term, and with vocal opponents of the regime locked up, the referendum will inevitably annoint him as president until 2014.
