On Friday June 18, Iranian people in an

Unprecedented massive move, boycotted the Iranian regime's sham election.

The People's Mojahedin of Iran PMOI/MEK reported on June 19 that less than 10 percent of eligible voters cast their ballots, which displays the Iranian people’s utter contempt for the regime in its entirety. The Iranian Resistance documented the process closely. According to a statement by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), more than 1200 journalists and reporters of Simay-e-Azadi TV (The Iranian Resistance Satellite TV channel, AKA, IranNTV) from 400 cities in Iran and more than 3500 sent video clips and reports that showed empty polling stations. The mass boycott of the election happened while regime leaders pleaded for the public to go out and vote on several occasions. Regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei described the election as a “national exam.” Other senior officials from all factions of the regime begged the people to vote, described it as a necessity for national security. Alamolhoda the Friday prayer leader in Mashhad explicitly said that those who don’t vote are “voting for the MEK.” The regime resorted to other tactics such as buying votes, handing out free food and accessories, and other incentives and even threats in order to encourage people to come to the polling stations. PMOI added that the mass boycott of the election was a decisive vote for regime change and proof that the people of Iran reject all factions within the regime. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the NCRI(National Council of Resistance of Iran), described the nationwide boycott of the sham election as “the greatest political and social blow to the regime's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the ruling theocracy and worthy of a historic congratulation to the people of Iran.” She added that the boycott proved and showed the world that “the Iranian people’s only vote is to overthrow this medieval regime.” Amnesty International on Friday June18, called for Ibrahim Raisi the Iranian regime's new president to stand trial for Crime Against Humanity.
