TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Army highlighted the important role that a high turnout in the upcoming elections would play in foiling the enemy’s plots and supporting the Armed Forces.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the Army called on all Iranian people to take part in the June 18 elections to frustrate the enemies’ plots and seditions.
While the adversaries have employed all of their media capacities to dissuade Iranians from voting in the upcoming elections, the Army staff and their families will once again reaffirm their allegiance to the Islamic Republic by casting their ballots, it noted.
The statement reminded the revolutionary and insightful people of Iran that their massive turnout in the Friday elections will thwart hundreds of plots against Iran and provide sturdy support for the Armed Forces.
In remarks on May 27, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei described the upcoming elections as a source of dignity and honor for the country.
“I seriously hope that with the determination of the people of Iran, these elections will become a source of credit for Iran despite the wishes of the enemy. Our enemies are using all resources at their disposal. This is being done by both our enemies and those inside the country who knowingly or unknowingly repeat what they say. They are trying to make the elections a source of disgrace for the nation. I hope that the people show determination and that Allah the Exalted bestows His blessings so that the upcoming elections will be a source of honor and dignity for the country, God willing,” the Leader stated.
Slated for June 18, the 13th presidential election in Iran will be held simultaneously with council and midterm parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections.
More than 59,310,000 Iranians are eligible to vote this year.
