The poll, ordered by FNA and conducted by one of the creditable polling centers in Iran, was carried out to receive people’s views about such different issues as Iran’s nuclear issue, performance of the law enforcement police in treating addiction and the addicted, hooligans and disrespect for the Islamic code of dressing (Hijab), performance of government in different areas and the position and status of political parties, media and political figures.
