Mass Murderer Iran Next President
The names of officials approved by the Guardian Council to run for president in the next fraudulent election were announced by the Iranian regime’s interior ministry on Tuesday.
The names of officials approved
Former chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili, current judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi, former IRGC commander Mohsen Rezaee, a former member of parliament Alireza Zakani, MP Hossein Ghazizadeh Hashemi, former governor of Isfahan province Mohsen Mehralizadeh, and Central Bank governor Abdolnasser Hemmati are among the qualified candidates.
Former parliament speaker Ali Larijani, current vice president Eshaq Jahangiri, and former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have all been disqualified from the election.
Every four years, the government organizes a charade of a presidential election to project a mask of democracy as a cover for its ruthless suppression of all forms of opposition. To give the sense of a true presidential election, the regime routinely brings significant leaders from all regime factions.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) President-elect, stated in a statement that Khamenei made steps to reinforce the regime and maximize persecution by removing presidential candidates who had participated in all of the regime’s misdeeds over the previous 40 years. Mrs. Rajavi stated, “This is a clear sign of the regime’s overthrow crisis and the final phase of the religious, terrorist dictatorship.”
By excluding Jahangiri and Larijani from the election, Ali Khamenei, the regime’s supreme leader, has nearly ensured that Raisi, who is notorious for his part in the death of thousands of opposition members, will be the next president of the fundamentalists’ totalitarian regime.
Raisi, who today has the best chance of winning the presidency was a key figure in the slaughter of political prisoners in 1988. The regime carried out a vast purge of prisons in a matter of weeks, executing more than 30,000 political inmates, following a fatwa issued by then-Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini.
While it is important emphasizing that every candidate for the presidency is fully vetted for their commitment to the mullahs’ brutal dictatorship, the regime’s inability to accept competition among its own criminal officials speaks volumes about its fragile and weak state.
Since the last presidential election in 2017, Iran has seen numerous waves of nationwide protests, the most widespread wave of anti-regime demonstrations since the 1979 revolution, culminating in the November 2019 uprisings.
The regime has only been able to keep power by brutally suppressing any sort of opposition. However, all government officials and the media are warning of the volatile state of a people infuriated by more than four decades of oppression and corruption at the highest levels of power.
The regime’s choice of Raisi to take the Presidency signals that it is ready for further escalation of protests in the months and years ahead.
The regime’s biggest problem, though, is an explicit boycott of the poll. Iran’s citizens have already stated that they will not vote in the upcoming election. Now that the dictatorship has revealed its true nature, the international community must identify it for what it is: a band of mass murderers and terrorists committing atrocities on the globe and their own people.
