Iran Presidential Election 2017: Ready For Change?
The Iran Presidential Election 2017 may see a change in regime.
One of the alternatives for President Hassan Rouhani could have been Maryam Rajavi, an anti-fundamentalist president-elect for the National Council of Resistance of Iran. But, the present constitution does not allow women in Iran to be electoral candidates.
Rajavi has a ten-point plan for future Iran. According to the plan, Iran will be a democratic country where the ballot box will decide everything.
Rajavi’s efforts are interesting to note since another woman, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is trying to be the first woman president of the United States. These two countries have an interesting relation.

Even though Iran agreed to Washington’s efforts for the nuclear deal, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has always been critical about it. The Iran Presidential Election 2017 may decide his faith as well.
Australia Network News spoke to Shahin Gobadi of the NCRI Foreign Affairs Committee. In the exclusive interview, Gobadi talked in detail about Rajavi’s plan for a secular Iran. According to him, the plan “articulates what kind of a future Iran” NCRI envisions to have.

When asked about having a wide range of support from around the world, Gobadi said that the main support for NCRI was coming from Iran itself. “This movement is based on a very very extensive popular support among Iranians inside and outside Iran, who see this movement as the hope to … establish democracy,” Gobadi said.
“More than 120,000 of the activists of the People’s Mujahidin of Iran have been executed in Iran in the past 35 years.”

Gobadi believes Australia, like all other Western countries, should be more vocal against the human rights violation in Iran. He asks Australia not to have any relation with the companies which may be directly or indirectly related to Revolutionary Guards.
On July 9, NCRI is going to have a major gathering called “Free Iran” in Paris. People from all over the world and hundreds of dignitaries from all five continents are expected to take part in the Saturday event. According to Gobadi, around 100,000 people took part in the event in 2015. Here is a video about the event.
The Iran Presidential Election 2017 is going to be a crucial one. However, many in the opposition believe the election is rigged and has no legitimacy.
