Iranians’ Votes to Disappoint Enemies: IRGC Chief

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian people will create another epic by participating in the elections on Friday and disappoint the enemies, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said.

Speaking to reporters in the southern city of Kerman on Thursday, Major General Hossein Salami said every vote cast in Friday’s polls will be like a missile fired at the heart of the enemy.

He added that the Iranian people’s presence in the polling stations will frustrate the enemy and encourage the front of the Islamic Revolution.

“I am confident that the majority of the Iranian people… will take part in the upcoming elections and register another great epic in the history of Iran and Islam,” the senior commander said.

Iranians will go to the polls for the parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections on Friday, March 1.

There are currently 290 seats in the Iranian Parliament, known as Majlis, elected by direct vote of people in nationwide elections for four years.

The Assembly of Experts is a high-ranking body that elects and oversees the activities of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution.

Members of the assembly are directly elected to office by people for an eight-year term. It holds biannual meetings to appoint a new chairman.
