Iran Election

DECKS ARE CLEARED FOR KEY EXECUTIONER TO BECOME NEXT PRESIDENT OF IRAN

The withdrawal of hard-line candidate Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf from Iran’s presidential election is a sure sign that the decks are being cleared to make way for notorious executioner and former State Prosecutor Ebrahim Raisi. This was the view expressed today by Struan Stevenson, international lecturer on the Middle East and former Member of the European Parliament.  Speaking in Edinburgh, Mr Stevenson said: “Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has for some time now been critical of the incumbent president Hassan Rouhani, whom he considers too weak to deal with the new muscular challenge posed by the Trump administration. Khamenei has even criticised some of Rouhani’s election slogans where the president claimed the nuclear deal he brokered with the West had removed ‘the shadow of war’ from Iran.

By Threatening Boycott Organizations, Tehran Signals Concern About Possible Uprising

By INU Staff

INU - On Wednesday, it was reported that Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had delivered a speech in which he not only urged Iranian citizens to go to the polls for next week’s presidential elections, but also threatened a “slap in the face” for anyone deemed to be fomenting unrest in the midst of the electoral process. The speech was only one in a series of public statements by the supreme leader and other hardline authorities regarding the threat of a public boycott of the polls and its potential to negatively affect the perception of legitimacy in the office of the president and the regime as a whole.
