(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Reacting to Syria's announcement elections will be held on June 3rd, the UN said Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Joint Special Representative Lakhdar Brahimi have repeatedly warned such elections will damage the process of finding a political solution to the three-year old conflict.

"The holding of elections in the current circumstances, amid the ongoing conflict and massive displacement, will damage the political process and hamper the prospects for a political solution that the country so urgently needs," UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told the daily press briefing in answer to a question.

He added that such election are "incompatible with the letter and spirit of the

Geneva Communique," insisting that the United Nations would "nonetheless continue to search and build upon any opening for a solution to the tragedy in Syria." The Syrian opposition also called the announcement a "farce." The planned elections are meant to cement Bashar Al-Assad's position as the country's President, ignoring what the UN and the Arab League have been doing to bring about a peaceful transition in the country which witnessed more than 100,000 deaths and millions of detainees, internally displaced and refugees. The regime continues to claim that it is fighting terrorists on behalf of the whole world.
