The Abolition of the Death Penalty
The NCRI and Maryam Rajavi oppose the use of the death penalty in all cases.
The NCRI is also determined to separate religion from government. Iran would become a place of religious freedom and pluralism, with followers of all religions welcome and free to practice their religious beliefs.
Maryam Rajavi and her NCRI government would uphold equality in all areas of Iranian society. Women would receive equal participation in political leadership, have the freedom to choose their clothing, their husbands, and be free to divorce.
The NCRI is dedicated to the establishment of an independent judicial system. The accused would be considered innocent until proven guilty and have the right to legal counsel, defense in court, and a fair trial.
In Defence of Human Rights
Following the fall of the mullahs, the NCRI would uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, eliminating discrimination against religious and ethnical minorities. The Iranian Kurdistan region will receive a plan of political autonomy, and all minority languages and culture will receive the necessary protections.
A Market Economy
Maryam Rajavi and the NCRI seeks to instate a market economy, with private property and investment. Investors will receive relevant protections and the NCRI will govern over a revitalized economy and environment.
The Pursuit of Peace
