Iran elects a new parliament after candidates list heavily purged

Iran’s senior leaders called on 58 million eligible voters to turn out and vote for the 290-member parliament on Friday, since abstention, they said, would “encourage Donald Trump to step up economic sanctions.” The Guardian Council culled 7,000 mostly reformist candidates from the list ahead of the vote, enhancing the chances of the hardliners, led by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to cement their grip on the last political institution, the Majlis, that was not entirely under their control.

Five cases of coronavirus in Iran, including two fatalities in the holy city of Qom, have also played into the campaign.

    What if there is big error, and there are still plenty of persons and organizations to sanction? You can never be too careful with these sanctions.

    A review and an improvement of sanctions on Iran’s IRGC need to be conducted. Better safe that sorry. Plus, this helps the oppressed Iranian People to grab the power they deserve in a true democracy.

      @Yasmine… Agree, asthe Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei Drifts from Truth the more IRGC Thugs will hate those Iranian Protesters who speak the Truth. The most effective way to destroys the Persian People is to deny and obliterate Persia’s own understanding of their Great Cyrus Persian Empire History. In this time of Global Communication Deceit telling the Truth is a Revolutionary Act. This Regime Rules through Fraud & Force, but once the Fraud is exposed they must rely exclusively on Force.

    Bomb the Guardian Council when they have a meeting amd get rid of them. Send cia and mosad to cause an uprising in Iran to get a democratic westen government.
    No need to bomb all of Iran. Save ammo.

      @ Israeli It is the Islamic libtards crude way of creating a DNS, i.e. clogging the comments section so that no one wants to come here any more.
