MEK Iran: Officials Fear Consequences of Election Boycott

Iranian people said NO to mullahs

MEK Iran: Today, Iranian people once again said NO to the mullahs

Elections took place in Iran today. The electoral process was as corrupt as the regime that managed it and the people of Iran boycotted the election as it was expected.

Many candidates from the faction on the opposite side of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had already been eliminated from the elections, making the choice a very unfair one. The Supreme Leader was basically eliminating anyone that dares to say a word against his policies.

The people of Iran, in particular the young people, were taking to the streets to urge others to boycott the elections and to make their voice heard. They were sending a message through graffiti on the walls or via large posters. They are saying: “My vote is regime change.”

As it was expected, very few people took part in the elections today. The University of Tehran, under the supervision of mullahs’ regime, had conducted a study, concluding that approximately 24 percent of the population of the capital city will vote. Another study predicts that less than 20 percent of the population will vote.

Today’s elections turned into just another crisis for the Iranian regime. The international community today clearly witnessed that the majority of the population of Iran refused to cast their vote and it drew attention to the shambles of the so-called “democracy” that the regime is running.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani recently said that the election process in Iran is nothing more than a selection process. However, he has clearly been put under significant pressure because he changed his story later. He said that his words were taken out of context and that he was referring to previous times in history.

However, he was right in the first instance. The elections in Iran are a convoluted way of selecting officials. The powerful Guardian Council which comprises 12 members that have all – directly or indirectly – been appointed by the Supreme Leader oversees the process. It is in charge of approving or eliminating candidates depending on their beliefs, their commitment to the absolute rule of the mullahs and their loyalty to the Supreme Leader.

Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK Iran) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the main opposition to the Iranian regime, has been supporting the people of Iran in their desire to boycott the elections. The Iranian resistance has drawn attention to the completely undemocratic and corrupt election process in Iran for years, and it is fully behind the people of Iran in their boycott.

The Supreme Leader tried to coerce people into voting by telling them it is their religious duty. Other officials said that if people do not vote, they are contributing to the possibility of further sanctions being imposed by the international community. There was also a comment made about how boycotting the election would increase the chances of Iran entering into military conflict.

By boycotting the sham election, the Iranian people once again said: NO to the mullahs. Their vote is regime change in Iran.
