Most Iranian Citizens Believe Upcoming Election will Result in Little Change

18 May 2017

Iran’s presidential election on May 19th gives the people of that country little choice. The two main candidates were hand picked by leadership in Tehran. All candidates in the election must be approved by the the Guardian Council. This year, only six out of 1,636 candidates were allowed to run.

In an article in The Hill, by Soona Samsami, Representative in the United States for the National Council of Resistance of Iran, she writes, “They are fighting over a very narrow sliver of turf. No matter who wins, count on Iran remaining viciously repressive, destabilizing to the region and ever-eager to attain nuclear weapons.”

Iran's state-controlled media has been dominated over that past several weeks by the presidential candidates making their case for the country's presidency.

It could also be possible that Trump’s administration re-imposes sanctions that Obama’s administration lifted. In any case, American policy towards the Iranian regime is going to come back into the spotlight.

Riyadh will want assurances that the U.S. will continue its harsher tone toward Iran and continue its pressure to stop Tehran's destabilizing activities in the region.

The U.S.-Saudi alliance has been shaky after U.S. withdrawal from the region, which was perceived as the U.S. leaning toward Iran, as well as a lack of direct action against Iranian ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

An article in REUTERS says that, “Saudi Arabia will also want to showcase high-profile investment deals with American companies to show progress on its ambitious "Vision 2030" economic and social reform agenda, while Washington says U.S. arms sales arms worth tens of billions of dollars are in the pipeline.”
