Iran has accused the United States of mediating in Friday’s presidential election in the Middle East.
As for the United States, elections in Iran are neither free nor fair.
A U.S. Department of State spokesman said on Monday that the results of the election won by Ibrahim Raisi were “fabricated.” He added that the United States had maintained that these elections were neither free nor fair.
“We consider this position to interfere in our internal affairs, which is against international law, and we reject it,” Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabbi was quoted as saying.
“The US government has no role to play in granting the right to express its views on the electoral process in Iran or any other country,” Rabbi added.
Raisi, who is considered a representative of the Iranian hard workers, recently oversaw the Iranian judiciary. He has been subjected to US sanctions for his involvement in human rights abuses.
The turnout in Iran’s presidential election was 48.8 percent, with many opposition politicians unable to participate (they were not allowed to run). It was less than an achievement. 3.7 million voters will not be able to cast their ballots.
