Iran has its next president, but the Iranian people sent their government a very clear message by not turning out to vote.

Dr. Hormoz Shariat with Iran Alive Ministries says, “The government has been losing its influence among the people. And they’re very afraid. The minority, 10-15% are in power in Iran. They are afraid that they will lose everything. This was not an election. They chose a person: President Raisi. He is a butcher, called the Butcher of Tehran. He has killed so many people. In the 1980s, he killed tens of thousands of people.”

Dr. Shariat says the Supreme Leader picked such a violent president in order to keep the people in line through fear. “We are moving in the direction of the government of Iran becoming more and more like the North Korean government. It is very possible that this was the last election of this type.”
