TEHRAN: “The more people attend ballot boxes, Majlis will be stronger,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with a large number of people from East Azarbaijan province to mark the anniversary of Tabrizers’ uprising against the Pahlavi regime on February 18, 1978.
“Election is a public Jihad. Election is honorable for the country. Election is a source of glory and respect of the Islamic establishment,” Ayatollah Khamenei went on to say.
“You are witnessing how the U.S. propaganda is trying to create a gap between the Islamic establishment and the people. They are working and planning continuously. As they themselves claim they have created think tanks, but won’t attain any result,” the Leader underscored.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that both the enemies and friends of Iran will monitor participation of the people in the elections.
