Iranian Pre-election (2017)

Iranian pre- elections of 2017, rigged elections

One year ahead of the Iranian pre- elections of 2017 for a president, all signs are there for a new rigged election. Boycott is all it deserves.

From now on, Iran enters a new era of propaganda. One year ahead of the presidential elections of 2017, all signs are there for a new rigged presidential election: the Wikipedia pages for the Iranian “democrats in turban” or reformists favoured by the Vali-e faqih are being updated; new websites are created by the ayatollahs’ operatives, and the political commentators have started to speculate on the Hassan Rouhani’s chances being “re-elected” (rather: re-selected) for a second mandate. Even, – cynicism is appealing -, the ex-president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad re-enters the political arena.

His main rival is the executioner of 1988,  Ebrahim Raisi.

During the coming year, we would have liked to discuss the possibilities of a political replacement to the Velayat-e faqih and the potential forms it can take in lieu of reading and hearing claptraps, patters, and waffling.

Not even a remote chance for that, mate!

We wrote this in 2013:

Waltz with Ali Djoun: Rigged Elections

Today, we would not change what we said, not even a word. In Iran, things are the same for now, except for the corruption spreading fast by geometric progression.

What a nice performance was on June 14, 2013. Except that on that day those who voted supported overwhelmingly the Velayat-e faqih.
Since, in the West, the Iranian diaspora, pitiful in politics and anything democratic, has continued to keep as silent as the dead. The Iranian opposition? Straw from a ruined mud wall.

In 2017, would we assist to a remake of the presidential elections of 2013?

I was born and grew up in an Iranian province. I question whether the Iranian mentality grasps the basic principles of democracy.

A piece of information and warning:

The censored Iranian journalism has no respect for its own published articles. They are deleted from the websites and the link to the posts is then broken in our writings. We will not remedy the broken link. We keep them as symbols of censorship, propaganda and neglect.
