Fars (Iran): "Supreme Leader Calls on Nation to Safeguard Elections"

"Plots hatched by the enemies to misuse elections in Iran"? That would mean fielding candidates he doesn't like?
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on the Iranian nation to keep vigilant against the plots hatched by the enemies to misuse elections in Iran.

"Elections are the manifestation of religious democracy. However, enemies seek to misuse elections to harm the country," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large crowd of worshipers during the Eid al-Fitr prayers at Tehran University on Wednesday.

The Leader called on the Iranian nation to safeguard elections which are a "divine blessing".

The Leader further stressed the importance of strengthening unity among the Iranian officials and nation particularly as the country is gearing up for parliamentary elections in March.

Elsewhere, Ayatollah Khamenei warned against plots hatched by enemies to hijack the Muslim world's achievements.

Nations in Muslim countries must be vigilant and cautious not to permit enemies to hijack their victories, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated.
