Iran’s top lawmaker Ebrahim Raisi has announced his candidacy for the June 18 presidential election.
After defrauding himself of a prison sentence for killing political prisoners in the 1980’s, the President has made a name for himself, campaigning against corruption, talking to the public about their court cases and going to remote areas during the plague.
The president appears to be in the running but will be challenged by politicians who oppose what the Guardian Council, the law enforcement agencies, will investigate.
Before officially registering his nomination for the Ministry of Housing on Saturday, the 60-year-old youth leader said a change in the country had not helped him achieve his goal of becoming a strong Iran.
“The outcome of the election should be a real development that restores hope and interest in the people,” he said. “Recently, the pain of injustice has been. . . it will become a sweet and just taste for establishing justice. ”
President Hassan Rouhani, a gambler who ratified the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, has resigned this summer after being given two new posts.
Donald Trump’s decision to exclude the US from the 2018 nuclear deal and impose sanctions on Iran deeply hurt Rouhani and his supporters.
Reformers should be helped by the Iranian people who supported Rouhani in his 2017 presidential victory, but who will not vote again against the economic crisis caused by the US crisis and the coronavirus epidemic.
Many Iranians believe that the presidency of the president will not be successful because the anti-reform movement is the same.
First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri is a key reformer. He acknowledged on Saturday that trust in the governing body had waned and that many people were no longer convinced that their votes could change.
He warned Iranians that things in the country were dangerous and could only get worse if they remained silent.
“I understand that many citizens are frustrated and confused and have no hope in the election,” he said. “There is no other option but to repair the ballot boxes.”
As a member of the outgoing government Jahangiri is to blame for many Iranians, including experts, for their suffering and Rouhani’s financial history.
Ali Larijani, a 63-year-old politician and former speaker of parliament is one of the nominees who registered on Saturday morning. He is best known around the world as the first nuclear negotiator in Iran.
Larijani assisted the President of Iran on previous nuclear negotiations and his role in the legislature was significant. By standing up against the powerful forces he is helping Rouhani to join forces with world powers.
The biggest problem with the election is the large number of people taking part, which is seen as a reversal of the Islamic state.
Iranian Prime Minister Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that his first goal was to bring in more people who would “help increase the country’s barrier, provide security and stability”.
The president, who is widely believed to be backed by the Revolutionary Guards, could benefit from boycotting voters in an attempt to discredit Iranian voters in all elections and in politics.
He is also very close to the chief executive and the chief justice is known to be interested in promoting domestic activities rather than in good relations with other countries.
The President also encouraged the nuclear deal in Vienna and said he would continue the “smart and innovative talks” and “would not waste a moment to end violence” if elected.
The Guardian Council has announced the names of those who will be allowed to run in the by-elections three weeks before the start of May 28.
Most of the politicians and the military registered. Many are expected to be closed.
The list includes Mostafa Tajzadeh, a former political prisoner, who has violated political and political law by demanding that Islamic law be abolished against women and challenged the prime minister.
Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad, a courageous former Iranian President who remains popular among the poor but despises the government, registered to vote on Wednesday. He also said he would not vote for anyone who would be banned, which would weaken the President among the poorest party.
Larijani said on Saturday “the economic sector is not a court or a court of law”, which is clear to members of the security forces as well as the President and his anti-corruption campaign. “It is unreasonable to think that taking on too many people can help [Iran’s] problems. ”
