Economic hardships plague the Iranian people. Meanwhile, Iran’s regime and its supporters continue to monopolize the country’s resources. The so-called private sector is one of the schemes used by the administration to plunder people.

The state-run Sharq daily acknowledged one of the regime’s embezzlements through so-called private enterprises in a piece headlined “astronomical numbers, but little information.”

According to Sharq, the regime has looted “a total of 450 quadrillion tomans or $23 billion in investment memorandum in just two to three months.” Meanwhile, the country’s total development budget for this year is estimated to be around 120 quadrillion tomans. Furthermore, this sum represents over a third of the country’s existing budget.”

Rohani’s proposed 2021 budget
Rohani’s proposed 2021 budget: (PMOI / MEK Iran), analyses say that this is especially shocking when we see the impact the Coronavirus health crisis has had and continues to have, on the people.

“The figure of 450 quadrillion tomans of the Memorandum of understanding for investment in the mining, industry, food, and petrochemical sectors is in a situation where the total investment in our country in 2019 was less than 100 quadrillion Tomans, of which 76 quadrillion Tomans was done by the private sector,” Sharq read.

Hassan Rouhani’s government proposed a public-private partnership bill, which the regime’s parliament is discreetly adopting. “The regime’s Planning and Budget Organization introduced this bill as part of the government’s budget bill in 2018,” according to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran).

The Government of the Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani published on December 8, 2019 its budget bill for the year 2020. But until today, discussions and disagreements about the 2020 budget continue between different currents of the Iranian regime.
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): By reviewing the mullah regime in Iran we can clearly see the regime’s deadlock and crises one after the other.

This measure was adopted by Hassan Rouhani’s Cabinet and delivered to the regime’s parliament. Rouhani’s government would use this strategy to hand over big unfinished development projects to the so-called “private sector.”

On 1 November, the state-run Mashreq News reported, “According to officials’ statistics and statements, there are more than 86 thousand semi-finished construction projects in the country, the completion of which is estimated to cost 1000 quadrillion Tomans of credit.” The government budget alone will not be sufficient to accomplish these projects, and implementing them with the government budget will take years.”

The analysis of the 2020 budget of the Islamic Republic has several dimensions.
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Ali Khamenei and the IRGC pay less than 1 percent of the country’s total tax, despite a 10 percent share of Iran’s economy.

Whereas many assume that this plan will help Iran’s private sector, evidence and facts reveal that under the mullahs’ government, there is no such thing as a “private sector” in Iran. The Revolutionary Guards’ (IRGC) alias for the “private sector” control a large portion of Iran’s economy.

Iran’s “private sector” is controlled by the IRGC, the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and their powerhouses. The privatization plan only benefits Khamenei and the IRGC.

“Today, about 99 percent of workers are unemployed. The popularity of temporary employment contracts and the expansion of contractors, which are the cause of labor exploitation in the country, are two of the most prominent reasons for dismissal in society.

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), the main opposition to the Iranian regime, has an internal network of activists that are ensuring the momentum of resistance is maintained.

Privatization in Iran has resulted in poverty, enslavement, worker dismissal, social anomalies, and the specialization of social justice, according to Daryabeigi, Executive Secretary of the Mazandaran Workers’ House, who spoke to the semi-official ILNA News Agency on Wednesday.

Iran’s ongoing economic crises and the regime’s role in escalating them, have turned society into a timebomb.

“The economic situation is catastrophic,” remarked Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the regime’s former president, in reference to the regime’s approaching sham presidential elections.

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): The Iranian regime is behind all of the economic troubles, yet it cannot admit to it.

The social situation is on the verge of collapse, and cultural conditions are indescribable in terms of disintegration.

Today, if we face a low voter turnout, which certainly happens in the current situation, it will have far-reaching domestic and international consequences. We will fall and can no longer rise again.”
