Nobel Laureate Urges Iranians To Boycott March 1 Elections

Saturday, 02/24/2024

Narges Mohammadi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and imprisoned human rights activist, has denounced the upcoming elections in Iran as "theatrical" and "staged managed."

In a statement shared on her social media accounts on Saturday, Mohammadi declared that boycotting government staged elections is a "duty."

"I, along with the people, will aim to declare the Islamic Republic's lack of legitimacy and the oppressive regime's rift with the people by sanctioning the theatrical elections," stated Mohammadi.

“The Islamic Republic, with its ruthless and savage oppression, the massacre of the youth on the streets and the gallows, and the imprisonment and torture of the people, deserves national sanctions and global disgrace,” she added.

Government and independent surveys reveal a lack of public interest in the elections. According to a survey by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), 52% of people were unaware of the vothing date.

Mohammadi reiterated in her recent statement that transitioning from the dictatorial religious regime is a national demand and the only path for Iran, Iranians, and humanity's survival.

According to another survey, most Iranians plan to boycott the upcoming parliamentary elections, with 75 percent expressing a desire for government overthrow.

Conducted by the Netherlands-based Gamaan institute, the survey gathered data from 58,015 Iranian residents aged 19 and above over an eight-day period from January 31 to February 7. Titled "Iranians' Attitudes Toward the 2024 Elections," it represents a sample from 90% of the country's literate adult population.
