In a meeting at the Council of Europe in April 2006, Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, elaborated on the movement's vision for a future Iran:
1. In our view, the ballot box is the only criterion for legitimacy. Accordingly, we seek a republic based on universal suffrage.
2. We want a pluralist system, freedom of parties and assembly. We respect all individual freedoms. We underscore complete freedom of expression and of the media and unconditional access by all to the internet.
3. We support and are committed to the abolition of death penalty.
