No Need for Int’l Election Monitors

No Need for Int’l Election Monitors

A senior lawmaker slammed a request by three US lawmakers for visas to Iran to monitor the upcoming elections, saying polls in the Islamic Republic do not require international monitors. “Elections in the Islamic Republic of Iran need no international oversight and in case of any need [for monitoring], that [monitor] will definitely not be the United States,” Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told IRIB news on Saturday. Boroujerdi added that the Americans have no right to make such an inappropriate request to observe Iran’s elections. The lawmaker emphasized that the Islamic Republic “has the most powerful democracy in the region and our elections are quite transparent and in line with international regulations.” On Thursday, three US Republican lawmakers applied for visas to Iran to observe the elections, visit the country’s nuclear sites and meet with officials of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.The next  elections for the 10th term of the parliament and the 5th term of the Assembly of Experts will be held simultaneously on February 26.
