The doors of the brokers are open to the elections

The doors of the brokers have opened to the elections.

Farhikhtegan newspaper writes that there are rumors indicating that some individuals are present alongside the electoral candidates who are involved in list-buying. They have their own specific methods for this list-buying, ranging from keeping candidates unaware of being on the list to receiving money to place a candidate on the list.

One of the candidates in the twelfth parliamentary elections, who has participated independently in this competition, tells a Farhikhtegan reporter that in general, some people may have a partisan share in the lists, but unfortunately, there are also other bad practices. One of the most important ones is financial dealings. Part of the amounts spent for the presence of individuals in coalition lists is paid by some real individuals outside the list whose interests lie in ensuring votes for the said list. However, as I also suggested, to be present in such lists, one must spend at least one hundred million tomans.

According to this election candidate, a minimum of 100 million Tomans is required to enter a list, which may not even be the main list. In response to the question of how this expense is justified, he says that list closers charge this amount under the pretext of taking photos and printing election lists. However, the reality is that this amount is not justifiable for these tasks.

He refers to another method of getting individuals onto a list as ‘purse politics’ and mentions that some groups and list closers invite candidates to gatherings and, promising them a spot on the list, they use them alongside famous political figures for a long time, thus taking away the individual’s political independence. However, some individuals accept this due to their entry into the political arena.
