Raeisi joins mix for 12th Iran presidential election
 Raeisi joins mix for 12th Iran presidential election

Hojjatoleslam Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi, the current custodian of the Holy Shrine of Imam Reza (PBUH) in the northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad, throws his hat in the ring for the forthcoming presidential contest.

Raeisi arrived at the Interior Ministry building on Friday and registered for the 12th presidential election, scheduled to be held on May 19.

He has served as Attorney General from 2014 to 2016, and Deputy Judiciary Chief from 2004 to 2014. He was also Prosecutor and Deputy Prosecutor of Tehran in 1980s and 1990s. Raeisi is also a member of the Assembly of Experts from South Khorasan Province, being elected for the first time in 2006 election.

On 6 April 2017, Raeisi officially announced his plans to run for the upcoming presidential election.

Earlier in April, the national assembly of the Popular Front of the Islamic Revolution Forces named their five final candidates for the May presidential poll through voting.

The shortlist included Hojjatoleslam Raeisi, who garnered 2,147 votes, followed by Alireza Zakani, a former lawmaker, with 1,546 votes, Mehrdad Bazrpash, also a former lawmaker, with 1,404 votes, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, who is the current mayor of Tehran, with 1,373 votes, and Parviz Fattah, the current head of the Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation, with 994 votes.

The five were elected from a total of ten candidates, who had been chosen in the first meeting of the assembly, which was held at the same venue on February 23.

'Votes will decide Iran's fate'

Addressing the media after registering for the presidential election, Raeisi said people’s vote forms the basis of the Islamic establishment in Iran.

“People’s votes determine the country’s fate,” he added.

The cleric said that all Iranian administrations have taken good steps for the country’s progress.

Raeisi said the status quo in the country can be changed for the better and added that national economy must be insulated from fluctuations in the global economy.

Raeisi said he has decided to take part in the presidential race as a candidate for all the Iranian people.

He added that he has chosen “labor and dignity” as the slogan of his administration if elected.

Raeisi said the Islamic Republic must have various forms of interaction with the entire world, including in the cultural and economic sector. 

He emphasized that citizenship rights must be observed in practice and earnest, rather than merely being drafted in a charter.

“We will continue with interaction with all countries but not the occupying Zionist regime (Israel) and of course such relations will be based on dignity,” Raeisi said.

He also pointed to the five-year crisis in Syria and added that as repeatedly announced, Iran’s foreign policy principles stipulate that the “Syrian issue must be solved by the Syrians themselves and the presence of foreign states will definitely add to the problems.”
