behind the current iranian election
“result was called before the votes could possible have been counted”
There is also quite a lot of analysis that suggests the vote is extremely unlikely to be as ‘reported’ by the Iranian dictatorship.
For instance, by comparing previous votes and percentages with proportions in earlier ‘elections’. There is said to be some degree of ethnic voting in Iran, and one of the candidates represents an ethnic area. A huge drop in his vote was claimed.
The very large vote reported is almost certainly an indication of widespread dissatisfaction. Contrary to common belief, when people are satisfied or do not care, fewer vote.
The dictatorship only lets those it approves of stand in their fake elections. According to reports, in this case, over four hundred applied to stand, only four were permitted, all from the ruling junta.
Despite constant requests for election monitoring, monitoring was banned.
Anyone who believes Ahminatraightjacketorashouldbe won is either a compete fool , or is pushing a totally venal agenda.
While the present fracas represents, to some extent, a battle within the terror dictatorship, there is also the element of an ever increasingly frustrated society struggling for a more open and just society.
on the pseudo-candidates in iran
The ‘elections’ of the terror dictatorship of Iran are always corrupt. They are used, as with many dictatorships, as a some slight cover for the illegitimacy of their regime.
Only candidates approved by the junta may stand for election. Over four hundred would-be candidates were barred under this consideration.
