Foreign media ‘didn’t miss the slightest opportunity’ to keep people from voting in nationwide election – Iran’s supreme leader
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took aim at foreign media outlets, claiming they did their utmost to discourage Iranians from voting this Friday in the parliamentary election.
“This negative propaganda began a few months ago and grew closer to the elections,” the supreme leader proclaimed on Sunday. “In the last two days, citing [the danger of] coronavirus, their media did not miss the slightest opportunity to discourage people from voting,” he said.
Iran has just reported a sixth death from the new coronavirus (Covid-19) this Saturday, with authorities shutting down schools and universities in several provinces to contain the spread.
