(Video) Iran: Raisi’s “speech therapy” won’t help economic crisis
Since the new administration took office, there have been no significant changes in the prices of basic necessities. The costs have skyrocketed.
PARIS, FRANCE, October 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), reported that Ebrahim Raisi, the new president of the Iranian regime, concluded another of his regional visits to Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province on Friday.
While making another mock populist move, he encountered angry locals who protested his presence, delaying his arrival in town.
“Raisi’s vehicle was blocked by angry and frustrated people. On October 1, the official IRNA news agency reported: “They were outraged and agitated.
Raisi’s trip to Ilam and Tabas in the months following his appointment as president of the regime was also unsuccessful. People flocked to the streets at every opportunity, expressing their contempt for the corrupt state and its criminal president.
In recent years, public protests in Iran have increased in response to the economic challenges they face due to the mullahs’ entrenched corruption.
Hassan Rouhani’s presidency ended with the Iranian economic crisis, which is worsening year by year. The economic problems in Iran sparked two major uprisings in 2018 and 2019 that shook the foundations of the regime.
“Since the new administration took office, there has been no significant change in the prices of basic necessities. In fact, the costs have skyrocketed, ”the state daily Arman reported on September 28.
According to figures produced by the regime, the inflation rate has reached 45.8% since Raisi came to power.
“The number of unemployed Iranians has increased by more than one million and 310,000 people compared to the summer of 2020,” the official Farhikhtegan newspaper said on October 2.
The cost of living for people has increased from 40 million tomans per year in 2018 to over 63 million tomans in 2021 due to rising prices.
The number of people living in poverty has risen to ten million tomans. Iranian workers can barely afford 30% of their living expenses on a salary of 4 million tomans.
As the Iranians suffer, Ali Khamenei, the regime’s supreme leader, refuses to address or even mention the country’s concerns across its multibillion-dollar financial empire. Raisi, the president handpicked by Khamenei, remained defiant, clinging to his speech therapy and general but ineffective advice.
“We will face popular protests if [the regime] does not act or think about the situation; given the majority of people’s economic conditions, it is safe to say that all of society lives below the poverty line.
People’s patience is limited in the face of adversity, and they cannot endure so much. When they realize that they have nothing to lose, they don’t want us to let them protest, ”Soheila Jolodarzadeh, a former regime MP, told the official ILNA news agency on Thursday.
Some authorities believe that the regime’s negotiations with world powers and acceptance of the terms of the international community are the only way to resolve the current economic crisis.
Khamenei understands that this is only a quick fix to the current problem. Accepting another cup of poison by ending the regime’s terrorist actions or the nuclear program, on the other hand, would exacerbate its regime’s internal bickering and lead to the loss of power components.
