Rafsanjani: People will create another epic in Majlis election

Tehran, Sept 7, IRNA – Chairman of the Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Monday that all people and political wings loyal to the Islamic Revolution will create another epic in the upcoming parliamentary elections on February 26, 2016.

Speaking for members and presiding board Islamic Iran Unity Party, he said late Imam Khomeini had always called for support of the people in the run-up to the Islamic Revolution.
From early stages of his campaign against Pahlavi despotic dynasty, the late Imam Khomeini had always called for support of the people, Rafsanjani said.
Late Imam Khomeini believed that Pahlavi dynasty would be toppled only by the people, he said.
He highlighted the vital role of justice which won support of all divine religions and Islam in particular, he said.
He advised the government to remedy the country’s economic recession which is root cause of unemployment.
Iranian people are politically-matured and easily feel impacts of economic recession in their ordinary life, said Rafsanjani.
