Today was the election day in Iran !

Election for "Khebregan" assembly ( an assembly of Ayatollahs or assembly of experts , in case of the death of Khameneie, the leader , they apoint new leader from among themselves for the Islamic Republic ) and election for city councils .
Mashaollah Shamsolvaezin, journalist and president of the" Association in Defense of Press Freedom" in speaking with "Aftab" newspaper, like many other reformists have asked people to participate in the election and said: "Boycotting the election is suicide , voting is a right for the people and they must do vote. He also said that: "There must be pressure on government in order to have a free and healthy election and also government must pay attention when counting the ballot and to computerize the counting for lowering the possiblity of cheating and to protect peoples vote".

Mr. Shamsolvaezin believes that; the reasons of those who want to boycotte the election is not sufficient , and he said: There are two groups who do not want to participate in the election , one that does not have enough political experience and the other one fundamentally disagree with the Islamic system".
