ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES:

Rouhani promises 'year of prosperity' for Iranians (AFP, January 11, 2016)

 Iranian President Hassan Rouhani pledged Monday that his country was about to enter "a year of economic prosperity," with sanctions lifted, and said his government had delivered on its promises. [...]

Speaking near Bushehr, a southern port city on the Gulf, Rouhani, a moderate cleric, also drew attention to elections on February 26 in which his allies are looking to make gains in parliament.

"I promise the nation of Iran that next year, with sanctions behind us and by young people's efforts, will be a year of economic prosperity," he said in a speech broadcast on state television.
