The NCRI's report on Iran's fake elections
The NCRI’s report on Iran’s fake elections

This report highlights the difference between the 2021 election and all prior 12 presidential elections in Iran.

While every election since 1979 has been rigged, they have served to give an appearance of democracy and republicanism to the ruling theocracy. The 2021 election is, however, vastly different, because Iran in 2021 is on the threshold of a fundamental transformation.

This election marks an end to the games and masquerades. It is now evident that the true fight is between the people and the organized opposition seeking freedom and democracy on the one side, and the entirety of the regime headed by Khamenei and Raisi and powered by the IRGC on the other. The electoral purge is, however, only a stopgap, which will likely backfire, given the fragile state of the regime. Khamenei has alienated a significant segment of the establishment and further narrowed the theocracy’s power base. The tide has shifted in favor of the people, who are expected to respond to the Supreme Leader with a massive boycott, the flip side of their desire to end the rule of the ayatollahs and establish a free and democratic republic.

From the book’s back cover

Every election in Iran since 1979 has served to give an appearance of democracy and republicanism to the ruling theocracy. The 2021 election is, however, vastly different, because Iran in 2021 is on the threshold of a fundamental transformation. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s Guardian Council has disqualified longtime establishment figures, most significantly Ali Larijani, the former speaker of the parliament. A former IRGC brigadier general and Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Larijani has been a senior advisor to Khamenei and a member of his inner circle.

Khamenei has dispensed with the no-longer beneficial “moderate-hardliner” farce in favor of securing the presidency of his chosen candidate, Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raisi, notorious for his key role, as a member of the 1988 “death committee,” in the executions of as many as 30,000 political prisoners, primary activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK).

The 13th presidential election has put an end to all the games and masquerades. It is now evident that the true fight is between the people and the organized opposition seeking freedom and democracy on the one side, and the entirety of the regime headed by Khamenei and Raisi and powered by the IRGC on the other.
