The United Principlist Front (UPF), a coalition of traditional conservative politicians loyal to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenie, won the runoff elections overwhelmingly. In Tehran, the UPF led by Qolam-Ali Hadad Adel, Khamenei’s senior advisor and father-in-law to his powerful son Mojtaba, will control 18 of the 30, or 60 percent of the seats. Preliminary results from the provinces show the same trend.
The Resistance Front (RF), a coalition of ultraconservative politicians led by the fundamentalist Shia senior cleric Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, has finished second in Tehran, capturing 33 percent of the seats. Two independent candidates were also elected in Tehran.
The supporters of President Ahmadinejad and his chief of staff Mashaie were big losers in the elections. They did not gain a single seat in Tehran and their prospects in the provinces were as bleak. Opposition figures and supporters of the Green Movement were not allowed to run in the elections.
The Ninth Majlis, the newly elected parliament, will convene late May. It is arguably the most right-wing Majlis in the history of the Islamic Republic.
What a joke! As if they didn't take over the country in the past 33 years.
Amadinejad is on the ropes! Time for a revolution! Take back the country! ... naw, you'll probably vote in another anti-human rights terrorist dictator again.
It's all farcical.
What does this terrorist regime know about democracy?
All those anti Iranian ex Iranian mullah lovers might believe the clap trap that comes out of the regimes propaganda making machine. But not us patriots, who believe that this regime must be eliminated in its entirety to save Iran from the dirty thieving mullahs and their ignorant mullah loving minions that strive to suppress the truth.

If you seriously want to eliminate this regime then get off your buns and do something instead of sitting around talking about eliminating the regime.
