Syria will hold a presidential election on June 3, state media reported on Monday, setting the date for a vote likely to give President Bashar Assad a third term.

"The 3rd of June is the date for the election," Syrian state television said, quoting the parliament speaker.

Assad is battling a three-year-old rebellion against his rule. International powers who back his opponents have described plans to hold the election as a "parody of democracy".
