Leader Thanks Iranians For 'Shining In Election Test', Urges Vigilance

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has thanked the Iranian nation for its "satisfactory shining in the great election test", saying the country has yet to remain alert against plots by the enemy to harm Iran. 

"In the face of the enemy's conspiracy to hit various pillars of the country, we all need to be vigilant in defense and ready for attack and counterattack," the Leader said Sunday during his regular seminary lectures.

Iranians went to the polls in the country's first general elections since the US imposed sanctions following the pullout from the 2015 nuclear deal and assassinated General Qassem Soleimani.

Ayatollah Khamenei touched on a massive campaign by foreign propaganda agencies to create a negative atmosphere before the elections in Iran. 

"This negative campaign started a few months ago and intensified closer to the elections, and in the last two days [up to the election day], their media outlets did not miss the slightest opportunity to discourage people from voting under the pretext of a disease and a virus," the Leader said.
