MEK: A Month to go Until the Sham Presidential Election in Iran
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that a month to go until the sham presidential election in Iran, the infighting between the so-called reformist and hardliner, has gotten worse.
Javad Zarif audio leaked
Mohammad Javad Zarif mullahs regime Foreign Minister acknowledged in audio leaked last week that the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) dominate government policy, which drew criticism from the hardliners, including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
The state-run media, including the IRNA news agency and the Vatan-e Emrouz daily, are warning that this could spur the people into a new uprising because of the shaky situation that the country is already in.
The boycott of the sham elections
The Iranian people, already aware that there’s no difference between the two factions, will heed the calls of the Iranian Resistance and boycott the elections altogether. The Sharq daily and Mostaghel daily already warned of voter turnouts between 40 and 60 percent, the idea is getting amongst protesters in recent weeks, including pensioners, nurses, investors, farmers, and workers.
Protesters in recent months and weeks, demonstrators from all across Iran chanted slogans like, “We have seen no justice and we will not vote!”, “We will not vote, we’ve heard so many lies”, “Boycott of the mullahs’ sham elections”.
Another uprising is inevitable
The Hamdeli daily wrote: “Before we worry about the political consequences of a low election turnout, we should worry about the social consequences. All candidates have a serious obstacle being non-participation in the election.”
The Jahan Sanat daily wrote: “A large part of the society has boycotted elections due to mismanagement of the coronavirus crisis, economic woes, pressure on people’s livelihood, officials’ negligence regarding the social events of January 2018 and November 2019. Given the status quo, a significant voter turnout is unlikely.”
The state-run daily Shargh on May 6, 2021, wrote: “In previous presidential elections, we have seen that some candidates were not accepted by strange interpretations, or they could not present themselves for the people choice, or they were prevented from the candidacy, being accused by expressions like non-practical adherence to Islam or the constitution, or like these, they have prevented the candidacy of those which they did not like.”
The state-run daily Shargh continued: “A very clear example of this behavior can be seen in the situation of disqualification of candidates for city council elections. The law on council elections has not changed; But in the current period, with the dominant approach in the parliament, the qualifications of a large group of candidates for the council elections have been rejected in an unprecedented and astonishing way.”
The MEK Resistance Units
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran)’s Resistance Units have taken part in a nationwide campaign to promote the boycott of the sham election and the people who are angry at the mullahs’ regime corruption and incompetence showed their support for that.
