Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has urged people to show a high turnout at the upcoming elections for parliament and the Assembly of Experts to be held in February.

"Elections are not owned by the leader, they belong to the Islamic Republic of Iran," Fars news agency quoted him as saying during his address to a group of people from Qom city in Tehran.

Khamenei also said the elections strengthen the system and increases the credibility and honor of the nation.

“To protect the country and its credibility, everyone should cast vote in the elections even those individuals who do not believe in the system,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
