160,000 Iranians cannot vote in Canada in upcoming election

Ottawa has refused to set-up polling stations for 160,000 Iranian citizens in Canada to participate in Iran’s presidential election on May 19, 2017.

As a Canadian, I’m not surprised by Ottawa’s decision. After all, our foreign minister Chrystia Freeland, is a Zionist Jew from Ukraine.

The decision came a month after Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations in New York sent a diplomatic note to Canadian officials requesting that polling stations be established for the May 19 election, according to the Iranian interests section at the Pakistani embassy in Washington.

The request was denied by the Canadian government, as it generally requires foreign countries to set up their polling stations at their diplomatic missions in Canada, and Iran does not have a diplomatic presence in Canada since September 7, 2012 when Canada’s foreign minister gay John Baird severed diplomatic relations with Iran and asked Iranian ambassador and other staff to leave Canada immediately. Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the decision and congratulated his Canadian poodle, prime minister Stephen Harper.

Iranian foreign minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif has urged the Iranians who live in Canada to cast their ballots in a nearby American city.

In a phone conversation I had with Canada’s foreign minister, she said they were willing to set up the polling stations but were unable to make the necessary arrangements to do so,” Zarif said.

Six candidates are contesting the post to lead the most influential country in the Middle East for next four years. They’re; the incumbent president Hassan Rouhani, a Muslim cleric, Ebrahim Raeisi, a Muslim cleric and law professor, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, Mayor of Tehran since 2005, Es’haq Jahangiri, current vice-president, Mostafa Hashemi Taba, a pro-Rouhani former vice-president, and Mostafa Agha Mirsalim, an engineer by profession.

On Friday, the six candidates rounded up their presidential debates with a hot economic debate cast live on the national TV (here).

The Jewish Lobby loves spreading its Fake News against anti-Israel individuals and countries. So how it could miss Iranian election? On April 27, 2017, the Washington Post predicted ‘moderate’ Rouhani’s re-election but cautioned that the two anti-Israel candidates, Ebrahim Raeisi and Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf might spoil western wish.

Over 56 million Iranian out of 80 million population, are eligible to vote. Nearly 3 million of them live abroad, and polling stations would be open in 103 countries around the world.
