Mohammad Khatami, the former president of Iran and a popular reformist figure in the country, has expressed his concerns about the results of the upcoming presidential election in Iran. Khatami believes the holders and supervisors of the presidential election in Iran have biased policies against reformist parties and this has frightened him.
“They must be aware about their comments on official and unofficial tribunes. In the current critical conditions, we see some politicians have worrying stances against other political parties which multiple the concerns of Revolution’s advocates. I’m sure that these policies cannot guarantee the health of the upcoming presidential election in Iran.” Mohammad Khatami addressed a group of reformists and referred to the recent speeches and comments made by the members of Supervision Committee, which is formed to protect the results of the election.
A few days ago Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, the head of Iran’s Guardian Council, said reformist parties are not entitled to take part in the next election because they don’t respect the constitution of the Islamic Republic.
The next presidential election and the next city and village councils elections will be held on 14 June 2013, simultaneously for the first time.
