Iran Press/Iran News: On Wednesday, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran issued a statement on the occasion of the 12th of Farvardin (April 1st), Islamic Republic Day, saying: "The nation has always been active on the political scene after the glorious victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979 led by Imam Khomeini, putting an end to the shameful life of the Pahlavi regime and the domination of the arrogant powers of East and West over Iran."

"Once again on April 1, 1979, with an exemplary commitment, at the call of its wise leader, with the conscious presence and unique votes of 98%, it chose the holy system of the Islamic Republic of Iran to run the country and registered the day of the manifestation of the nation's resolution in establishing the Islamic Revolution in the history of Iran," the statement read.

After the glorious victory of the Islamic Revolution under the leadership of Imam Khomeini, in April 1979, a referendum of the Islamic Republic was held throughout Iran.

According to the results of this referendum, which was announced on April 1, 1979, more than 98% of those eligible to participate in the referendum agreed to the establishment of the Islamic Republic.
