They will exit the elections much weaker than ever before

Dr. Sanabargh Zahedi, Chair of the Judicial Commission of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), emphasized the elections held under the shadow of this complete religious dictatorship ruling Iran has no meaning whatsoever.
In response to a question by Saudi Arabia daily, Asharq, that if those who describe themselves as “reformists” are another face of the extremists, but actually playing a more dangerous role than the conservatives? This senior Iranian opposition figure said, “Under the mullahs’ rule all the rights and authority are under the control of the supreme leader, who monitors all political, economic, cultural, military, security and other aspects of life.
Zahedi said some of the candidates in Rafsanjani’s slate are amongst the main officials in charge of domestic crackdown, exporting terrorism, violence and massacres, including Rouhani’s judiciary minister Mostafa Pour Mohammadi. He was a member of the ‘Death Committee’ back in 1988 that massacred 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of that year. Mohammad Rey-Shahri was Iran’s first minister of intelligence… and Ali Rayzani was the individual who executed hundreds of People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) members, and carried out a stoning ruling and filmed the footage that shocked the world over. Ali Fallahian was the “minister of terrorism” who orchestrated most of the terrorist attacks and assassinations abroad during his reign as minister of intelligence. Mullah Dori Najaf-Abadi, a former minister of intelligence who organized a series of “political assassinations” in Iran…
… Zahedi said these elections will be similar to those staged in the past, meaning in contrast to the regime’s entire nature, and it is expected the Iranian people will largely boycott these elections. The only people voting for the regime are its supporters, consisting of only 4 to 5% of the population. This will create a major predicament for the regime.
Even if this popular dissent fails to evolve into a massive uprising, still without a doubt the mullahs’ regime will exit this “flaming operation” much weaker than ever before.
