The state media's use of politically inflammatory language ahead of the anticipated application for extension of time by Government to the Constitutional Court as recommended by SADC is a cause for concern because it undermines the judicial process by creating an impression that the matter has been pre-judged and will not be given fair consideration by the court.

Did I hear right?
Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

The agreement followed a recommendation by Southern Africa Development Community (SADC), an organisation meant to ensure common political values, systems and institutions among its 14 member states in southern Africa, over the weekend urging the coalition government to approach the court for a deferment of the poll date.
