“We have pious and revolutionary people. They have had an active presence in all stages of the Islamic Establishment [since 1979]. As long as the people are present and play a role, the adversaries cannot do any wrong,” Ayatollah Jannati said on Friday after casting his vote.
He stressed that enemies and ill-wishers have failed to harm the country thanks to people’s continuous presence on the scene.
The senior cleric further called for a high turnout in the ongoing presidential elections, attaching great significance to a “lively participation” by voters.
Polls have opened nationwide in Iran’s 2021 presidential election. Over 59.3 million Iranians are eligible to vote for one of four candidates running.
