IRMO backs Hashemi Rafsanjani in Iran's run-off election

Tehran, June 19, IRNA-Islamic Revolution Mojahedin Organization (IRMO) said on Sunday that the political party will back Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani in the run-off election.

IRMO said in a statement that it prefers the next president not to accept to become a 'procurement officer' or 'secretary of government organs'. It appreciated extensive turnout in presidential election as a great victory for the nation, but, at the same time condemned orchestrated efforts of 'military organs which have nationwide networks to bring to top the most extremist anti-reform candidate'.

It hailed the process of the election in which there was diversity in terms of candidates, but, complained against illegal interference in the voting and the huge expenditure from public funds in the last few days ahead of the election day.

"What happened in the course of the election is an attempt by certain organs to turn the Islamic Republic to the Islamic Rule stripping the popular system from the republic aspect," said the statement.

The political party called on the public to vote for Hashemi Rafsanjani in the run-off election to avert domination of fascism.
