Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday urged the Iranians to actively participate in the upcoming parliamentary elections, official IRNA news agency reported.
Khamenei advised some Iranian media and officials to avoid "talking in a way to discourage people from attending the elections."
He also said that the enemy "exaggerates" the disputes and use them against Iran.
The Iranian top leader called for big turnout in the election, saying that it will disappoint the enemy.
Nearly 58 million Iranians are eligible to vote in the 11th round of parliamentary elections scheduled on Feb. 21.
