Summary of Iran Stories in Today&apos;s BroadcastsBehnam NateghiSunday, February 08, 2004 <b>Reformist Parties Boycott the Elections, Some Partially</b> • The Participation Front (Jebhey-e Mosharekat) party, which has the largest bloc of MPs in the Majles, announced that it would not participate in the elections. The leftist Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution (MIRO) boycotted the elections. The society of the reformist clerics (Jame-e-ye Rowhaniyoon Mobarez), of which President Khatami and Majles Speaker Mehdi Karrubi are ranking members, said it would participate in the elections, but would not published a list of favorite candidates. The centrist executives of construction (Kargozaran-e Sazandegi) party said it will take part in the elections and will issue a list of its favorite candidates after a meeting of the party bosses tonight. (Jamshid Zand) • It is better for the complaints of official organs against each other to be ignored, the Supreme Leader said in a letter responding to the complaint against the Guardians Council sent to him by President Khatami and Majles speaker Mehdi Karrubi, who said the Guardians Council disregarded the Supreme Leader&apos;s order about reinstating the candidacy of the existing Majles MPs and those approved to run in previous elections. The Supreme Leader expressed satisfaction with the course of preparations for the elections, IRNA reported. The letter to the Supreme Leader showed that the demands of the president and the Majles speaker for free and fair elections have not been met, vice president Mohammad-Ali Abtahi said in an interview with state-owned reformist “students” news agency ISNA. (Mahmonir Rahimi) • The Supreme Leader is responsible for the consequences of the parliamentary coup d&apos;etat being organized by the conservative faction, resigning Majles MP Ali-Akbar Mousavi-Khoeini said in a speech at a gathering of the Amir-Kabir University&apos;s Islamic student council members. Meanwhile, the chief the armed forces judiciary said resigning from office at the elections&apos; time is considered a punishable crime. (Shireen Famili) • The upcoming elections are unconstitutional, the society of human rights defenders, of which Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi is a ranking member, said in a statement. (Baktash Khamsehpour) • More than 500 prominent political activists, academicians and journalists expressed support for the reformist Majles MPs banned from reelection, and in a statement of boycott called the elections unfair and illegal. The members of the Guardians Council, who belong to the conservative association of Qum seminary teachers, which is a political party, have banned members of their rival parties from standing in the elections, <b>Ahmad Montazeri</b> son of the most senior cleric dissident Ayatollah Hosseinali Montazeri, who was among the 500 who signed the boycott statement, tells <b>Radio Farda</b>. The low voter turnout would diminish the legitimacy of the Islamic Republic, and cause it to lose its popular backing; this is a dangerous development which threatens the survival of conservatives as well as the reformists, he adds. Postponing the elections for one month would give the Guardians Council time to completely reconsider its decisions, he says. (Shireen Famili) • With its mass disqualification of candidacy applicants, the Guardians Council has illegally added another stage to the elections, central committee member of the association of Islamic student councils (Dafter-e Tahkim-e Vahdat) <b>Mehdi Aminizadeh</b> tells <b>Radio Farda</b>. Due to this and the fact that the Majles does not have any decisive role in the country&apos;s political system, the association had pointed to its intention to boycott the elections in previous statements, he adds. Final decision will be announced after meetings today and tomorrow of the association&apos;s general committee, he says. (Leyli Sadr) • In a gathering of the members of the Tehran University&apos;s Islamic student council, the participants called on President Khatami to resign. Khatami should have resigned years ago, when he saw that he was not able to lead the reformist movement, member of the TU Islamic students&apos; council Banafsheh Babai said. (Amir Armin) • President Khatami is faced with the most difficult decision of his presidency. Many Majles MPs, who resigned in protest against the election bans, had hoped that President Khatami would support them by resigning from office. But President Khatami announced that, despite his belief that the elections would be un-fair, un-free, uncompetitive and illegal, his government will hold the elections on time, just to have followed the Supreme Leader&apos;s order. His critics say that Khatami sacrificed his own popular support to his belief in the legitimacy of the principle of absolute clerical rule. Consequently, the critics charge, with the decline of the legitimacy of the clerical rule, Khatami&apos;s status has begun to diminish. (Mehdi Khalaji) • President Khatami is not the same person who resigned in 1991 as the culture minister under President Hashemi-Rafsanjani. Last year, when the Guardians Council rejected Khatami&apos;s bills to reform the election law and end the Guardians Council&apos;s role in vetting the elections&apos; candidates, President Khatami did nothing, and his Majles allies tried to justify his lack of action, writes reformist daily <i>Sharq</i>. The conservative faction has strong historical and political mandates, and by attempting to take over the Majles through a three-pronged attack, it is implementing those mandates, writes the reformist daily <i>Yaas-e Now</i>. (Ali Sajjadi) • The reason that the Supreme Leader managed to defeat President Khatami&apos;s efforts to reinstated reformists banned from reelection were President Khatami&apos;s lack of popularity and the people&apos;s disappointment in the reformist faction, writes Italian daily <i>La Republica</i>. (Ahmad Ra&apos;fat, Rome) • The people are indifferent to these elections, Cologne-based editor of the Marxist Fedayian Khalq organization&apos;s official newsletter Kar <b>Fereydoun Ahmadi</b> tells <b>Radio Farda</b>. The people want to defeat these show elections by leaving the ballot boxes empty, he adds, speaking after a gathering of leftist opponents of the regime in Cologne. (Shahram Mirian, Cologne) <b>Judiciary Begins Summoning Reformist MPs, Activists and Journalists</b> • The Tehran judiciary issued a new wave of summons for reformist journalists and political activists, as well as prominent Majles MPs to answer charges of propagating lies and poisoning the public opinion. Those summoned include MPs Ansarifard, Mohtashemipour and Montajebnia, Participation Front central committee members Hadi Qabel and Mostafa Tajzadeh, journalists Mashallah Shamsolvaezin and Shadi Sardr, and head of the official news agency IRNA Abdollah Naseri. (Farin Asemi) <b>There May Be 500 AIDS Cases in Qum, Local Medical School Chief Says</b> • More than 50 AIDS cases have been identified in Qum, and the total number is estimated to have exceeded 500, head of Qum medical school Dr. Mohammad-Reza Rais-Karami said. Previously, it was thought that the source of HIV infection is only shared hypodermic needles among addicts, but most of the AIDS patients have been affected by unprotected sexual intercourse, he adds. In Qum, where thousands of Shiite clerics live and rule, the Islamic ban on public contact between unmarried people has pushed all sexual relations underground, and according to experts, rapes and homosexuality are more common in Qum than in other cities. (Mehdi Khalaji) <b>Judiciary Closes Kerman&apos;s <i>Hadith</i> Daily Over Coverage of Murders</b> • Kerman&apos; s local daily <i>Hadith</i> received an order from the culture ministry&apos;s domestic press administration to immediately seize operations, as the writers and editors were preparing tomorrow&apos;s edition of the paper, the daily&apos;s chief editor <b>Mohammad-Sadeq Taheri</b> tells <b>Radio Farda</b>. In its order, the culture ministry cited three complaints against the newspaper filed by three of the six men who have been sentenced to death in preliminary and appeal trials for killing five men and women whom they deemed “corrupt on earth,” in what became known as Karman&apos;s serial murders, he adds. The ban on Hadith was issued with no regard to proper legal procedures, he says. (Masoud Malek) <b>Interior Ministry Offers Mutual Lifting of Visa Requirements for Iran-Iraq Travel</b> • Iran and Iraq should mutually drop visa requirements for travel between the two countries, deputy interior minister Ali-Asghar Ahmadi, in Baghdad on official visit, said. Everyday, 10,000 Iranians pilgrims visit Shiite shrines in Najaf and Karbala, he added. Coalition officials have expressed concern that al-Qaeda members and other terrorists enter Iraq through Iran. (Payman Pezhman, Baghdad) <b>Iran Expands Political and Military Influence in Iraq, <i>Le Figaro</i> Reports</b> • The Iranian agents have heavily infiltrated Shiite Iraqi organizations in the south, where Islamic laws are being reinforced by the 15,000-man army Badr, equipped and trained by the Islamic government in Iran, writes Paris daily <i>Le Figaro</i>&apos;s correspondent in Iraq. (Mir-Ali Hosseini, Paris) <b>Russia Expresses Interest to Invest in Iran-Armenia Gas Pipeline</b> • The construction of a gas pipeline from Iran to Armenia is in Russia&apos;s interest, given potential for exporting electricity from Armenia and the fact that Russia owns several generating facilitates in Armenia, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Boris Alyoshin said at a Friday press conference. Alyoshin, who is co-chairman of the Russian-Armenian international commission for economic cooperation, said that Gazprom may become operator of part of the pipeline through Armenia. "Therefore, without a doubt there is commercial interest here," he said. (Mani Kasravi, Moscow) <b>US Position on Iran Elections Contradicts its Position on Iraq</b> • US remarks on elections in Iran indicate a “contradiction” in its policies, foreign ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said in his weekly press briefing Sunday in Tehran. Pointing to the US position against early and direct elections in Iraq, Asefi said US comments regarding the mechanism of holding elections in Iran proved a contradiction in its policies towards to two neighboring countries. (Baktash Khamsehpour) <b>Bam Earthquake Victims Face Continued Shortages</b> • Nearly two months after the devastating earthquake in Bam, the victims continue to face shortages of proper shelter, clothing and medial and healthcare assistance. Despite massive foreign help, which has been delivered to Iran, most earthquake survivors continue to live in inadequate tents provided by the Iranian society of the Red Crescent. (Arash Qavidel, Tehran) • British crown prince announced he will visit Bam. (Mahdieh Javid) • Head of the humanitarian aid office of the EU will visit Bam. (Baktash Khamsehpour) <b>US to Reject Iran&apos;s Application to Join WTO</b> • In the upcoming meeting of the World Trade Organization&apos;s 146 members, the US is expected to back Iraq&apos;s application and reject that of Iran, <b>Radio Farda</b>&apos;s Paris-based economic commentator <b>Fereydoun Khavand</b> says. (Baktash Khamsehpour) . جمشيد زند (راديوفردا): با ارسال نامه محمد خاتمي و مهدي کروبي به آيت الله خامنه اي، شمارش معكوس براي برگزاري انتخابات دور هفتم مجلس شوراي اسلامي آغاز شد. از گروههاي هجده گانه دوم خردادي تا كنون جبهه مشاركت، سازمان مجاهدين انقلاب اسلامي و مجمع محققين و مدرسين حوزه عليمه قم اعلام كردند كه در انتخابات شركت نمي كنند. مجمع روحانيون مبارز در انتخابات شركت مي كند، ولي ليست انتخاباتي منتشر نمي كند. حزب كارگزاران هم در انتخابات شركت مي كند و قرار است امشب در جلسه اي ليست نهايي نامزدهاي انتخاباتي اين حزب تعيين شود. اين در حالي است كه گروهها، سازمانها و شخصيتهاي اصلاح طلب در درون و برون از حاكميت يك به يك اعلام مي كنند كه در انتخابات شركت نخواهند كرد. بيش از 500 تن از فعالان سياسي، استادان دانشگاه ها، روزنامه نگاران و وکلاي دادگستري، با صدور اطلاعيه اي در حمايت از نمايندگان مستعفي مجلس، انتخابات را غير قانوني، غير آزاد و غير عادلانه خوانده و اعلام كرده اند كه در انتخابات اول اسفند شركت نمي كنند. كانون مدافعان حقوق بشر هم در ايران با صدور بيانيه اي، روند فعلي انتخابات را مغاير با مندرجات قانون اساسي خوانده است. در اين بيانيه كه به امضاي شيرين عبادي و ديگر اعضاي هيات موسس رسيده، آمده است: مجادلات كنوني در مورد چگونگي بهره مندي ايرانيان از بديهي ترين حق انساني كه همان گزينش مسئولان حكومتي جهت سپردن بخشي از سرنوشت اجتماعي خويش به آنان است، نهايتا به استمرار محكوميت مردم ايران از دخالت مستقيم در انتخابات نمايندگان قوه مقننه انجاميده است. از نمايندگان مستعفي مجلس هم امروز فاطمه راكعي، نماينده تهران انصراف خود را از كانديداتوري مجلس هفتم اعلام كرد. نايب رئيس كميسيون فرهنگي مجلس امروز گفت: با توجه به اين كه رئيس جمهوري از قولهايي كه در ارتباط با عدم برگزاري انتخابات غير عادلانه و غير مردمي داده بود، عدول كردند، با اين اوضاع شخصا هيچ انگيزه اي براي شركت در يک انتخابات فرمايشي ندارم. خانم راكعي گفته است كه مجلس هفتم فاقد مشروعيت است، زيرا که مجلس دقيقا مهره چيني شده است. بهاالدين ادب، نماينده رد صلاحيت شده سنندج نيز امروز در سخنراني خود در دانشكده علوم اجتماعي دانشگاه تهران، به شدت عملكرد محمد خاتمي، رئيس جمهوري، در قبول برگزاري انتخابات انتقاد كرد و گفت: شما خود را مامور اجراي قانون اساسي مي دانيد، امروز چه مصلحتي بالاتر از جمهوريت نظام پيش آمده است كه سكوت كرده ايد. آقاي ادب شرايط موجود را نقطه عطفي در مسير حركت مردم ناميد و گفت: كوچكترين كوتاهي و تسامح باعث استقرار استبداد سياه خواهد شد. اما در حالي كه بسياري از سازمانها و گروههاي دوم خردادي و نمايندگان مستعفي مجلس، آقاي خاتمي را مورد نكوهش قرار داده و او را به عدول از قول و قرارهايش متهم مي كنند، محمد خاتمي، رئيس جمهوري اسلامي، صبح امروز در سخنراني خود در مراسم هفدهمين جشنواره خوارزمي، بدون اشاره به بحران سياسي موجود و سرنوشت 130 تن از نمايندگان مستعفي و صدها تن از رد صلاحيت شدگان تنها به اين بسنده كرد كه بگويد: ملت بايد بخواهد كه به هيچ چيز ديگري جز محيط آزاد، آرام و مردم سالار تن در ندهد. اما حملات محافظه كاران به نمايندگان مستعفي و آن بخش از جبهه دوم خرداد كه اعلام كرده است در انتخابات شركت نمي كند همچنان ادامه دارد. به دنبال اظهارات روز گذشته آقاي جهرمي، رئيس هيات نظارت بر انتخابات وابسته به شوراي نگهبان كه گفته بود در موقع مقتضي جريانات پشت پرده را بازگو خواهد كرد، امروز محمد نيازي، رئيس سازمان قضايي نيروهاي مسلح اين تهديد را تكرار كرد و گفت: اي کاش شوراي نگهبان محدوديت شرعي و قانوني نداشت و مي توانست مطالب پرونده ها را بيان کند. او همچنين تاکيد کرد که مسلمان بودن براي نمايندگي کافي نيست، بلکه پايبندي و التزام لازم است. در حالي که در 11 روز باقي مانده به برگزاري انتخابات دور هفتم مجلس شوراي اسلامي، محافظه کاران در صدد هستند که تعداد هر چه بيشتري از راي دهندگان را به پاي صندوق هاي راي بکشانند، در محافل سياسي نگراني از آغاز بگير و ببندها و پيگردهاي قانوني، پس از برگزاري انتخابات، افزايش يافته است. بهاء الدين ادب، نماينده مردم سنندج، اين نگراني را امروز خطاب به محمد خاتمي، رئيس جمهوري اسلامي چنين بيان كرد. او گفت: اگر قدرت آزادي زندانيان سياسي را نداريد، دست كم بر شمار آنان نيفزاييد. با ارسال نامه حجت الاسلام سيد محمد خاتمي و حجت الاسلام مهدي کروبي به رهبر جمهوري اسلامي، شمارش معكوس براي برگزاري انتخابات دور هفتم مجلس شوراي اسلامي آغاز شد. از گروههاي هجده گانه دوم خردادي تا كنون جبهه مشاركت، سازمان مجاهدين انقلاب اسلامي و مجمع محققين و مدرسين حوزه عليمه قم اعلام كردند كه در انتخابات شركت نمي كنند. مجمع روحانيون مبارز در انتخابات شركت مي كند، ولي ليست انتخاباتي منتشر نمي كند. حزب كارگزاران هم در انتخابات شركت مي كند و قرار است امشب در جلسه اي ليست نهايي نامزدهاي انتخاباتي اين حزب تعيين شود. بيش از 500 تن از فعالان سياسي، استادان دانشگاه ها، روزنامه نگاران و وکلاي دادگستري، با صدور اطلاعيه اي اعلام كردند كه در انتخابات اول اسفند شركت نمي كنند. كانون مدافعان حقوق بشر هم در ايران با صدور بيانيه اي، روند فعلي انتخابات را مغاير با مندرجات قانون اساسي خواند. بسياري از سازمانها و گروههاي دوم خردادي و نمايندگان مستعفي مجلس، رئيس جمهوري را مورد نكوهش قرار داده و او را به عدول از قول و قرارهايش متهم مي كنند.
