On Saturday, Saudi Arabia renewed a warning to its citizens to leave Syria and not to travel to the country.
"Due to deteriorating security conditions in Syria, the Saudi Foreign Ministry reiterates its advice to the Saudis not to go there," said a statement issued by the ministry, SPA state news agency.
"The ministry calls the Saudis who are in Syria to leave the country," the statement added.
Meanwhile, Syria is set to hold a multi-party parliamentary election on Monday as a sign of the Syrian regime to proceed with democratic reforms. The vote for 250 seats in parliament follows the adoption of a constitution that allowed the formation of political parties which was approved in a referendum earlier this year.
On the other hand,opposition leaders in exile called Sunday the Syrians to boycott the parliamentary elections scheduled Monday in Syria, describing them as a cynical maneuver of President Bashar al-Assad to cling to power. They added that elections cannot be held under the threat of weapons.
Two opposition leaders in exile, Haytham Manna and Haitham Maleh, said Sunday that the Syrians should not participate in this poll.
Moreover, SANA state news agency reported that Syria’s government has freed 265 inmates detained for taking part in anti-government rallies.
Releasing detainees is a requisite of the six-point peace plan proposed by the international envoy Kofi Annan that was implemented in April.
