Iranians to Dismay Enemies in Friday’s Elections: IRGC Commander

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Hostile attempts to dissuade Iranians from voting will be frustrated by the turnout of people in the nationwide elections on March 1, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said.

Addressing a cultural event in Qom on Saturday, Major General Hossein Salami said the Iranian people are prepared to create another “political epic” in the parliamentary and the Assembly of Experts elections on the coming Friday.

Pointing to a constant political battle between Iran and the enemies, the general warned that the adversaries are seeking to disconnect Iranians from Islam, impair their determination, and dissuade them from going to the ballot boxes.

He expressed confidence that Iranians will once again “punch the enemy hard in the mouth” and prove in practice that they do not pay a single iota of attention to the enemy’s quests.

In remarks on February 18, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei described the elections as a reflection of the republican system and the Islamic Republic's values, which are in conflict with the Arrogant Powers’ plans.

"Elections are a manifestation of the republican system and this is why the Arrogant Powers and the US, who are opposed to both republicanism and the Islamic nature of the Islamic Republic, are against the elections and the enthusiastic participation of the people at the ballot boxes," the Leader added.
