Rafsanjani may run for president in upcoming Iranian election

Tehran, Nov 16, IRNA -- Secretary of Presidential Campaign Headquarters for Iranian Experts Council Mohammad Reza Tourani said in Tehran on Tuesday that Head of Expediency Council Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani in his meeting with a member of the political wing on Tuesday has officially rejected the views of some individuals on his withdrawal from upcoming presidential campaign.

Speaking to IRNA, he said Rafsanjani has said that he himself will decide whether to take part or refuse to run in the upcoming presidential elections and this will be decided following invitation by some independent and moderate political wings as well as national convergence.

"In our view, in case Hashemi Rafsanjani is to take part in the upcoming presidential elections, the other four conservative candidates may stand down and decide to cooperate with him as his cabinet ministers," he said.

There are over ten political wings who back Rafsanjani's nomination in the upcoming presidential elections, he pointed out.
