A00233607.jpgTEHRAN (FNA) – Former Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Larijani said the world is focusing on the upcoming parliamentary elections to view the people’s turnout.Larijani, a key parliamentary candidate from the General Principlist Coalition, said the front is responsible to not only revive the ideals and values of the late Imam Khomeini, but is also obligated to follow the guidelines of the Supreme Leader by acting in a more unified manner, a press tv report said.

The public turnout in every election, which has always been unprecedented, symbolizes democracy in Iran, he said in a meeting with a group of clerics in Qom.

The former chief nuclear negotiator called the upcoming parliamentary election “very sensitive”, saying the West is trying to prove that its pressure and sanctions against Iran have been effective.

But the political message of the March 14 election is very crucial and is linked with the dignity of nation, he stressed.

Larijani also praised the innovative activities of President Ahmadinejad’s cabinet in spreading national peace by eliminating the people’s problems and insisting on restoration of the nation’s legal rights at the international scenes.

The Principlists (Osulgara) is a coalition of Iranian parties that pursue policies akin to those of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his supporters.
