MEK: No Free Elections in Iran
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that Iran’s next president will face many of the crises, some of which have existed for a long time, some of which were passed down from the previous administration, and others of which have only lately been added to the multitude of issues that have afflicted the country’s economy, politics, and society.
State-run media outlets
Iran’s administrations have never had a bright future due to the regime’s bad policies and the existence of the supreme leader phenomenon. And, regardless of who becomes the next president, they will be left with the country’s “super challenges,” as several state-run media outlets are claiming.
Challenges such as the coronavirus outbreak, which have left significant social problems in Iran, including growing domestic violence, suicide, and depression, in addition to deep economic losses.
The mullahs’ regime long-term corruption
Iran’s dying economy has worsened as a result of the government’s long-term corruption, theft, and investigations into nonsensical and non-economic activities. With the coronavirus outbreak, the rule’s deliberate ignorance of the risk to the people and the country’s economy has worsened.
Except for a few years in the 2000s, inflation has been steadily increasing. The inflation rate in Iran increased from 2019 to the end of 2020, according to the Iranian Statistics Center, and this trend has persisted in the first months of 2021.
Fall in the rate of the active population in the labor market
The drop in the unemployment rate was due to a fall in the rate of the active population in the labor market, not an increase in employment, according to a further review of the labor force by the parliament’s Research Center.
The country’s budget deficit in the 2021 budget has one main axis: the non-realization of budgeted resources and the government’s 320 trillion tomans budget deficit. The creation of a budget deficit was not prevented by the agreement following some modifications on the budget, and the head of the parliament’s economic commission recently forecast a budget deficit of 350 trillion tomans for 2021.
The primary source of all hostilities in the region
Instability in the Middle East, with Iran’s regime serving as the primary source of all hostilities in the region. Iran’s government has a long history of interfering in the affairs of other countries, dating back to Ruhollah Khomeini’s founding of the Islamic Republic, with Iran-Iraq serving as the initial excuse and detonator of all Middle East problems.
With the emergence of Hezbollah in Lebanon and the assistance of the Houthis in Yemen, this trend has persisted. After then, many more proxy groups were formed in all of the Middle Eastern countries, particularly Iraq, following the invasion of Iraq by a US-led coalition in 2003.
The mullah regime’s destructive activities
Iran’s administration is now dealing with a review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA+, which includes these cases as well as its missile case, proving that the world can no longer tolerate this regime’s destructive activities.
Since 2013, Iran has been involved in international nuclear talks relating to the JCPOA, and now, with the inauguration of the new US administration, talks on resuming the JCPOA and easing sanctions have restarted.
Blackmailing with proxy wars
In the midst of this crisis, Iran’s regime is attempting to exploit the political divide between international powers by suppressing radical and decisive voices with the help of its lobbies and blackmailing with proxy wars like the 11-day confrontation between Hamas and Israel.
Under the fundamentalists’ leadership, Iran’s next president will inherit 40 years of terrible policies and bad decisions, leaving the country in a state of various crises that are worsening by the day. According to many analysts, Iran is approaching a point of no return, where part of the damage to the country’s infrastructure will be irreversible.
