Argentinian analyst terms Iran election as nat'l unity celebration

Tehran, IRNA – Despite certain disagreements, the elections in Iran are a sort of national unity celebrations and democracy dominates the voting process, an Argentinian analyst believes. 

Jorge Crins, spokesman of the Communist Party of Argentina, told teleSur TV network that the 13th presidential election was held in Iran at the same time when the country faced the so-called maximum pressure and bullying measures by the United States and its European allies.
However, he noted, the Iranian people have proved that the foreign powers’ pressures cannot create a gap among the nation and stop them from participating in the elections.
The Iranian people accepted politicians’ invitation to show a big turnout, he said, adding that the participation can uphold the country’s foreign policy, because they proved that the people are the ones who determine their own fate.
Answering a question on the effect of Ebrahim Raisi as the president-elect of Iran on the future of attempts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, he emphasized that all candidates from different factions stressed on their determination to lift the West’s cruel sanctions, and that Raisi has a peaceful character who wants to go through with the nuclear negotiations.
It is worth mentioning that the US is the one who pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018; so, Washington should think of returning to the deal, the political expert noted.
As to the outlook of Iran’s success in overcoming economic woes, he underlined that the Islamic Republic is somehow an advanced and organized country, which enjoys remarkable technology know-how, and that the Iranians have good relationships with Russia, China and many Latin American states.
Despite the US-imposed sanctions have brought about difficult situation for the Iranian nation, they stood by regional countries in the face of bullying powers; so, these policies gave the Islamic Republic upper hand to overcome hardships, the Argentinian expert concluded.
