TEHRAN (IQNA) –  Iran’s Assembly of Experts called for the Iranian people’s massive turnout at the upcoming demonstrations to celebrate the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution’s victory.


In a statement released on Sunday, the assembly said the country’s people will once again show their political insight and religious and revolutionary fervor by taking part in the rallies on February 11.

It also called on all Iranians to take part in the upcoming elections to foil the enemies’ plots against the country.

Every year, millions of Iranians across the country observe ten days of celebrations marking the anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution that put an end to the monarchy of the US-backed Pahlavi regime in the country.

The day of Imam Khomeini’s return to Iran marks the beginning of the Ten Days of Dawn, which culminates with rallies on the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11.

The Iranian nation toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 41 years ago, ending the 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.

The Islamic Revolution spearheaded by the late Imam Khomeini established a new political system based on Islamic values and democracy.

The parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections will be held simultaneously across the country on February 21.

There are currently 290 seats in the Iranian parliament, known as Majlis, elected by direct vote of people in nationwide election for four years.

The Assembly of Experts is a high-ranking body that elects and oversees the activities of the leader of the Islamic Revolution.

Members of the assembly are directly elected to office by people for an eight-year term. It holds biannual meetings to appoint a new chairman.
