Ayatollah Tabasi:
A member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom said that people must choose representatives to the Islamic Consultative Assembly who seek to serve and don’t seek to betray the country and the nation.

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Ayatollah Najmoddin Tabasi, a member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom, emphasized the necessity for the widespread participation of the people in the February 21st legislative election in Iran and said, “The people must feel a sense of duty in relation to their presence at the ballot boxes and mark the fate of the system.”

His Eminence pointed out that failure to participate in the election constitutes indifference to the country’s fate and said, “No one can say that ‘I’m concerned about the future of the Islamic Revolution but I’m not going to run in the election’ because such statements are an example of indifference to the determination of the country’s fate.”

He stated that throughout the history of the Islamic Revolution, our people have proven that they stand for the system, “In different periods, the people have shown that despite the problems, hardships and economic problems, they will not give up their system and will support it.”

Ayatollah Tabasi said that the enemies are eying the size of the people’s presence in the election arena and have plans based on the presence of the people and emphasized, “The enemies lower the reported number of people who turnout at the elections to convey their indifference toward the Islamic Revolution and the system and then move forward to harm the country on this basis.”

His Eminence said that the enemies have always been disappointed by the widespread presence of people in different arenas and emphasized, “I consider the election as a national and religious duty. Our Iranianness and Islamism demand that we be present at the ballot box and frustrate the enemies more than ever before.”

He explained the characteristics of a balanced representative of the Islamic Revolution and stated, “Throughout the history of the Islamic Revolution, especially in the sixth parliament, we have had people who would have faced many problems if the wise leadership of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] didn’t exist. Undoubtedly, the country was facing a lot of problems. Today, the people have to choose representatives who serve and not to betray the country and the people.”

Ayatollah Tabasi considered the root of the country’s problems to be some traitorous and ineffective officials and said, “Today, the enemies have entered the arena with all of their might to get us out of the arena. Therefore, we must send representatives to the parliament who are sympathetic to the country and the people and who fear the threat of the West, not those whose bodies are in Iran and their minds and hearts are in Europe and the United States.”
