Rafsanjani: Iran has set exemplary model for freedom


Chairman of the Expediency Council Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Saturday that Iran’s strength and security serve as good models for freedom.

Expressing concern over deplorable status of regional countries about practising democratic principles to refer to the votes of the people, he said if the world mass media would have been fair enough, they would introduce the strength and security of the Islamic Republic of Iran as an exemplary democratic system to the world public opinion, Rafsanjani said.

‘We are living in a region that the states do not refer to the public votes and they do not hold such democratic elections the Islamic Republic of Iran did serving national stability and economic development,’ President Rouhani said.

He lauded massive presence of people in the country’s elections along with the efforts of officials for sound conduct of two elections – the presidential and parliamentary.
