Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said in Qom on Thursday that clerics should maintain their influential role in policy making processes both in Iran and in the entire world of Islam, IRNA reported.
Addressing the fourth nationwide meeting of clerics, Rafsanjani cautioned the audience not to remain indifferent towards different issues and abide by their duties to publicize ethics and fight corruption.
Rafsanjani said that under the ongoing sensitive conditions, the clergymen should either have stronger presence at Majlis or introduce qualified persons to further back up the Majlis.
He said clerics should strive for further consolidation of the bases of the Islamic establishment.
