Amid protests in the aftermath of Iran’s presidential election, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution says the Islamic establishment will never yield to pressure.
In a Wednesday meeting with high-ranking parliamentarians in Tehran, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said that the country’s affairs must be handled based on the law of the land as well as the principles of the Islamic Revolution.
The Leader stressed the importance of the execution of law and restoration of order in the country, adding that violation of the law would lead to dictatorship.
“On the current situation regarding the presidential election, I insist on the implementation of the law. That means we will not take a single step beyond the law. For sure, neither the system nor the people will give in to pressure at any price.”
Ayatollah Khamenei went on to urge parliament officials to fully cooperate with the government in the administration of the country.
Pointing to the complicated responsibilities of executive bodies, Ayatollah Khamenei said the Parliament (Majlis) “should help the government in such a rough journey and must not be too hard on the administration.”
