Press Shia Agency – Hujjat al-Islam Seddiqi said that massive turnout in Iran’s next presidential election is decisive and demonstrates that the Islamic establishment is governed by the people.

Press Shia – Speaking during the first Friday prayer congregation in the Iranian New Year, 1396 at the University of Tehran, Hujjat al-Islam Kazem Seddiqi said that massive turnout in Iran’s next presidential election is decisive and demonstrates that the Islamic establishment is governed by the people.

“It will also indicate that the Islamic Revolution is still flourishing,” he added. 

“Iranians’ massive participation in the election would also safeguard the Islamic Revolution,” the cleric said. 

Hujjat al-Islam Seddiqi urged the Iranian voters “to vote for those who are not influenced or supported by foreign powers or media” as these are weak points for those who run for the presidency. 

The next presidential election is to be held nationwide in May. 

He touched upon the reasons given by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, for naming this year as the year of “Economy of Resistance: Production and Employment,” underlining that the move would frustrate enemies’ endeavours for separating the Iranian people from the Islamic Revolution through economic pressures. 

He urged the Iranian authorities to pay due attention to create job for the Iranian youth and do all within their power to implement the “Economy of Resistance” policies. 

He added supporting domestic production would play a key role in flourishing the country’s economy. 

The cleric said that enemies of the country are seeking to convince the Iranian nation that their problems with the Islamic establishment have no solution. 

“Enemies are to make the Iranians believe that the Islamic Revolution and establishment are not efficient,” said the Friday Prayers leader.
