Gov’t Pledges to Hold Impartial Elections

President Hassan Rouhani reaffirmed his government's commitment to a non-partisan approach in holding the upcoming legislative and Assembly of Experts elections.
Speaking in a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, President Rouhani said the government will not act in favor of any particular faction in the elections and will try to help facilitate the participation of all factions, parties and groups.
Provincial officials will play an important role in the efficient administration of elections in their respective constituencies, IRNA reported.
In the meeting, Fereydoun Hemmati and Mohammad Reza Khabbaz were appointed new governors of Qazvin and Semnan provinces respectively.
"The existing potential must be exploited to the fullest by governors to ensure the effective implementation of the government's policies," he said.
The president noted that despite Iran's poor relations with a few countries, its foreign policy revolves around efforts to develop "constructive" international relations.
Rouhani stressed that development and progress hinge on establishing good relations based on constructive interaction with the world, but this does not mean having no differences with any other country.
"Our policy is founded on cooperation with the world and friendly ties with other countries," he concluded.
