Iran, Aug. 15, 2019 - As the tensions and pressures on the Iranian regime increase, we are witnessing more infighting among officials and ruling factions.
On Wednesday, August 14, Iranian regime Vice President Eshagh Jahangiri acknowledged the utter corruption and disastrous economic situation and said, “Unfortunately, within the last 40 years, our economic growth has been low and fluctuating. Especially in the last decade, we had the worst investment situation and this is a serious threat and weakness of our economy. Now we have to add a widespread corruption to this situation that hurts our people more than anything.”
Government corruption and economic woes have been the focus of many protest movements in the past few years. In December 2017, protests over economic grievances quickly spread to more than 140 cities and fast turned into anti-regime demonstrations. People from all segments of the Iranian society regularly target regime officials in their protests, blaming them of corruption and adopting destructive policies that are directly affecting people’s lives.
As far as the people of Iran are concerned, they will only be relieved of corruption and economic miseries with the toppling of the ruling mullahs’ regime.
