Iran, March 23, 2019 - In one of his most direct attacks against Iranian regime president Hassan Rouhani, Mohammad Ali Jafari, the head of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), said, "People should be vigilant. Don't embrace those who defeat their opponents in a televised debate just because they talk fancier. Don’t be fooled and don’t go out to vote for whoever is a fancy talker."
He cautioned people to be vigilant and think twice before voting for who they want. In a direct attack against Rouhani, Jaffari accused him of being full of empty promises and no action.
"All they have is words for the people. Someone who just speaks better will only continue to speak after the elections. However, someone who acts well, although may not be able to defeat his opponent in the debate by words, but he would act better in managing the country… So people must be vigilant,” he added.
In other news, a member of Majlis (parliament) made rare admission that at least 90% of the regime's parties don’t even have a single member.
Rahimi Jahan-Abadi, a member of regime's Majlis, admitted that unlike other countries in the world where parties have programs, plans, solutions for problems, and where parties have real forces, 90% of the so-called parties in Iran are just names registered on paper and do not have even one member.
“While people in Iran are struggling in poverty and misery, all these so-called parties don’t even have a simple agenda to solve problems. No agenda, no solution, not even a word of comfort to alleviate the suffering of the people,” he insisted.
“Political parties in every country have organizations, have active members who carry the party’s agenda. But in our country, more than 90% of parties are just some names on a piece of paper. They don’t even have an active member.”
He then pretended that he is defending the people and asked: “Why are you destroying the people’s lives? Those who are protesting just outside the parliament door, are asking the government authorities for their plundered money. They paid down payment to purchase a car, but no one is hearing their grievances. These so-called parties act on their own behalf, not for the people,” he continued to say.
