Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the following statement on Iran’s elections:

“Today the Ayatollah is offering a choice between his handpicked candidates: a hardliner and a hard hardliner.  Regardless of who is elected, Tehran will continue to oppress its people and advance terror and ballistic missile programs that threaten the world.  Iranians deserve better.”
