Iran


Tehran, AFP: Votes were cast for the parliamentary election in Iran on Friday.  It has given the possibility of giving the conservatives an edge.  The country's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamani cast the first vote.

Khamnai later also appealed to the public to participate in the voting as soon as possible.  He said that by doing so he will ensure the national interest of the country.  This is the 11th parliamentary election in the country after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The election is being held at a time when there is intense tension between the US and Iran.  The anti-government voices in the country are strong due to the accidental shooting down of the Ukraine plane.  According to experts, in this election, conservatives will get more support from voters than President Hassan Rouhani.  Rouhani returned to power in 2017 with the promise of greater independence to citizens and better relations with Western countries.

After the US split from the nuclear deal in the year 2018, Iran is facing economic recession and inflation.  A unemployed man Aamir Mohtasham said, 'Iran's biggest problem is instability.  Election is a useless exercise.
