MEK :Iran systematic corruption
Instead of finding answers to the difficulties that the Iranian economy is in shambles and more and more people are sinking into poverty, the Iranian leadership is too preoccupied with internal arguments about who has the greater share of authority.
Raisi nominated ministers who are loyal to Ali Khamenei
Top government officials are focused on filling critical positions with people they know and trust in order to press forward with the same ideology. As a result, relatives and close acquaintances are frequently favored over persons with legitimate qualifications for the positions.
Many ministries, governorates, and other high-ranking government positions are filled with individuals who actively participated in the regime’s crackdown of protestors and dissidents.
Currently, the president of the government, Ebrahim Raisi, has nominated ministers and governors who are either loyalists to supreme leader Ali Khamenei, individuals who have served in past presidents’ cabinets or have close ties to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
Corruption in the mullahs Regime brought poverty
Ayatollah Abdolmaleki, the Minister of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare, spoke to the state-run Keyhan daily on November 3 and accused past regimes’ leaders of several security and economic crimes. He said that many of them were involved in corruption cases and that some of them had already been convicted.
Corruption and looting in the Ministry of Health’s Food and Drug Administration are also among the examples admitted by government officials.
A former manager of the Food and Drug Administration was also the CEO of a state-owned company, which he exploited to conduct his crimes, according to a quote from Abdolreza Mesri, the former Minister of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare, published in the Aftab-e Yazd newspaper last month.
the plundering of Iranian citizens’ assets by Ali Khamenei
He imported medicine through his pharmaceutical companies, but then purchased it from his private enterprises for 1,050 times the price through his state-owned companies.
Corruption and plundering of Iranian citizens’ assets, as well as nepotism and comradeship in official positions, are all too widespread. They are no longer limited to a single administration but have become a common denominator throughout all of them.
In a November 3 issue, the state-run Jomhouri-e Eslami daily declared that the regime’s culture “has dominated appointments in significant sectors of the Islamic Republic for many years.”
Ongoing protests by people from all walks of life
When it comes to the government, corruption and nepotism have been fully entrenched. These causes, together with the cruel persecution of the Iranian people, are what bind regime officials and leaders in their frantic quest to capture and maintain power in an already frail system.
This is what meritocracy looks like under the mullahs’ laws, where Khamenei and institutions affiliated with him sit atop the pyramid and continue to plunder the country’s resources. And it is the regime’s corrupt nature that is backfiring against it, as evidenced by widespread protests by people from all walks of life across the country.
