Iran as a Global Hope

Among many flawed and rigged electoral processes in the world, this Iranian presidential polls embodied a little seed of hope.

We congratulate Hassan Rouhani, the incumbent president, who overwhelmingly won the majority of votes cast by Iranians on Friday, 19 May 2017, and was re-elected.

We now wait for many more good news: Iran must stick closely to the nuclear deal (JCPOA, Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action); it is time to grant a universal amnesty to all political prisoners; freedom of information must be extended; regime controls on many social, economic, political realities must be weakened; women rights must be boosted; greater local self-government and stronger social, public services are expected by all Iranian cities and regions; and many more reforms are needed.

This blogger always believed in a slow, gradual, pragmatic, nonviolent, progressive transition in Iran. Such a development is coherent with our findings on social mobilization in the globalized world.

It is time to hope and celebrate, tonight.
