Syrian President Bashar al Assad briefly paused his speech in front of the new parliament on Wednesday after feeling uncomfortable in the middle of the law, which was broadcast live on YouTube by the presidency of the Arab country.
The President had to interrupt his speech shortly after 30 minutes, after which he withdrew for about a minute. He was later greeted with applause when he returned to the podium to continue addressing those present.
In a brief statement published about its report on the Twitter social network, the Chairmanship indicated that a voltage drop made the President feel uncomfortable, without providing further details.
The event took place at the People’s Palace due to restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, which, according to the Syrian state news agency SANA, prevented it from taking place at Parliament’s headquarters.
