Ex-Prime Minister Musavi called for “fundamental changes” in Iran

The former head of the Iranian government, one of the most significant politicians-reformers, Mir-Hosein Musavi, called for “fundamental changes”, which should become the result of many-month protests against the Iry authorities in Tehran.

“Iran and Iranians need fundamental changes and are ready for them,” wrote a politician in a statement published on his website and widespread by local media on Sunday, February 5. His words quoted by Deutsche Welle.

According to Musavi, the basis of the protests caused by the death of Mahsa Amini after her arrest by the police police in mid -September 2022, there are “interconnected crises.” This is “economic, environmental, social, legitimate, cultural and media crises”, he points out.

Musavi considers the current “structure” of the Iranian power of the “insolvent” and offers to hold a “free and honest referendum” On a possible new constitution. As during the Islamic Revolution of 1979, the people have “the right to fundamental reviews to pave … the path to freedom, justice, democracy and development” Iran, Musavi said.

81-year-old politician was one of the closest proxies of the first senior supervisor of Iran Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini. From 1981 to 1989 he headed the government of the country. After the abolition of the post of prime minister of the country, he left politics for 20 years, but in 2009 he returned and fought in the elections against the conservative politician of Mahmud Akhmadinejad. Musavi lost the election, after which he repeatedly declared falsification of results. According to AFP, he was under house arrest for 12 years, although no official accusations were brought to him.
