In run-up to sham elections, regime’s factions feud over PMOI’s removal from terrorist list and failure of mullahs’ plots against Ashraf
NCRI - In the run-up to the sham elections, the various factions of the mullahs’ regime have been feuding amongst themselves over the removal of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) from the United Kingdom and European Union terrorist lists and the failure of the regime’s plots against Camp Ashraf. Faced with most of the criticism, the regime’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a press conference on Monday pathetically tried to play down these defeats. “This grouplet is dead and has no role in geopolitical equations”, he said.
NCRI - The Iranian regime’s Council of Guardians rejected the application of 471 candidates for the so-called presidential election, approving only four. This once again displays the true face of the elections under the clerical rule which is nothing but a ridiculous show aimed at consolidating the state of ruling factions within the regime.
More than 99 percent of candidates were eliminated while they all had pledged their full allegiance to the Velayat-e Faqih (absolute rule of the clergy) system in writing. Many of them have been involved in crimes committed by the regime over the past 30 years.
NCRI - Students at the University of Zanjan (northwest Iran) on Monday disrupted a speech by Mirhossein Moussavi, former mullahs' prime minister, and demanded explanations about his role during the 1988 massacre of political prisoners.
Moussavi who acted as prime minister during that period, has announced his candidacy for the mullahs’ upcoming sham presidential elections.
