[ltr]Ahmadinejad calls for "free" elections in letter to Khamenei Asdasd[/ltr]
[ltr]Follow - Mawazine News[/ltr]
[ltr]Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for free presidential and parliamentary elections in an open letter to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.[/ltr]
[ltr]Khamenei supported Ahmadinejad when he re-elected president in 2009 with mass protests in which scores of people died and hundreds were arrested, shaking the ruling religious establishment before security forces, chiefly the Revolutionary Guards, were able to quell unrest.[/ltr]
[ltr]But unlike the two leaders in 2011 when Khamenei, who has the final say in all the policies of the Islamic Republic, canceled a decision by Ahmadinejad to dismiss the intelligence minister and hinted that he had exceeded his powers.[/ltr]
[ltr]Ahmadinejad, a conservative figure who was popular during the presidency, was unable to run in the 2013 elections because he spent two consecutive terms in office. He was succeeded by pragmatist Hassan Rouhani, who won a landslide victory that year, as well as last year.[/ltr]
[ltr]While Rohani called for the liberalization of the economy and society and for the IRGC not to intervene in the elections, he did not go so far as to publicly declare his support for restrictions on the powers of the Supreme Leader, a point Ahmadinejad made in his speech to Khamenei on Wednesday.[/ltr]
[ltr]"It is an immediate and necessary requirement to hold quick and free elections for the presidency and parliament, of course without planning by the Guardian Council and interference from military and security institutions, so that the people have the right to choose," he wrote.[/ltr]
[ltr]0 Basic fixes[/ltr]
[ltr]Presidential candidates and parliament are subject to scrutiny by the Guardian Council, which puts Khamenei's preferences into account. Ahmadinejad's critics have accused the council of manipulating the results of the 2005 and 2009 elections in his favor. However, the Guardian Council decided that Ahmadinejad would not be eligible to run for president before last year's election.[/ltr]
[ltr]In his speech, Ahmadinejad also called for "fundamental reforms" in three branches of government - the executive, parliament and judiciary - as well as in the office of the Supreme Leader. He did not elaborate on the reforms he envisioned.[/ltr]
[ltr]But almost no one has ever heard that an official in Iran publicly criticized Khamenei or his powers. A defect in the Supreme Leader is a punishable crime.[/ltr]
[ltr]Serious unrest erupted in December for the first time since the 2009 protests, mainly because of economic difficulties. But protesters soon complained of the absence of democracy and demanded the departure of senior officials, including Khamenei.[/ltr]
[ltr]At least 25 people have been killed in unrest and thousands detained before security forces launched a wide-ranging campaign, and protests subsided in January.[/ltr]
[ltr]Ahmadinejad also demanded the release of political prisoners and the removal of Ayatollah Sadiq Amuli Larijani, head of the conservative judiciary, who accused him of unjustly targeting his allies.[/ltr]
[ltr]"Ahmadinejad and his group have become much more active in criticizing the judiciary and the government. It is still on a populist path," said Ruzbeh Mir Ibrahimi, a reformist Iranian reformist journalist now based in New York.[/ltr]
