Addressing a group of Iranian donors here yesterday, Ayatollah Khamenei said people have played a determining role in all important arenas, including politics, economy, health, culture and education.
"The principle of the Islamic Revolution was also based on this popular presence and if people had not stepped into the arena of role-playing, politicians and political streams would not have been able to do anything," the Leader noted.
Ayatollah Khamenei has on many occasions underlined the strong public support for the Islamic establishment in Iran, and warned that enemies are making nonstop efforts to undermine people's trust in their ruling system.
In the latest move to show support for the Islamic establishment in Iran, Iranians from different walks of life came to the polling stations in large numbers on March 2, 2012 to determine the fate of the country's legislative body for the next four years.
Over 48 million Iranian voters were eligible to cast their ballots, and the final estimates showed that 64 percent of them have been present at the polling stations.
The Supreme Leader said people's health care and treatment should be on top of their agenda.
People's role in supporting charity organizations is very significant, said the Supreme Leader, urging officials concerned to remove obstacles to expansion of medical services to people.
