Leader hails nation’s turnout in presidential election

TEHRAN, May 20 (MNA) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei hailed Iranian’s massive participation in presidential election in a message on Saturday.

“Friday’s epic election once more reflected Iranian’s national will; nation’s high turnout across the country indicates the strength of religious democracy,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in his message on presidential election on Saturday.

Leader underlined that such participation would once again disappoint enemies and ill-wishers; “with high turnout and casting over 40 million votes, a new record was set in presidential election and showed increasing progress of Iranian nation.”

“Victors of the election are you the Iranians and the Islamic Republic Establishment, which despite enemy’s efforts won the great nation’s trust; people from all walks of life with any political affiliation came to the ballot boxes in a secure election,” Leader hailed the Iranians.

Ayatollah Khamenei then addressed the elected government; “attending to lower classes, villages and deprived regions, prioritization, fighting corruption and social problems must atop next government’s agenda,” adding that national dignity and wisdom in global relations and efforts for international power are among priorities in Islamic Iranian management.

I should appreciate every single participant and those encouraging them to fulfill this duty, the message concludes.
