Ramezanzadeh terms reform as sole option for free election in Iran

Kermanshah, March 5, IRNA -- Government Spokesman Abdollah Ramezanzadeh referred to the reform movement initiated by the Iranian people and said that it will continue, given that reform is the only option for a free election.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the Second Kurdish Reform Conference in the city of Kermanshah in Western Iran, he added that his remarks are personal.

He noted that he does not speak as a government spokesman, but as a Kurdish reformist.

"It seems quite irrational for the Iranian people with a rich culture to vote for those seeking power and advocating a closed atmosphere.

"According to the Kurdish reformists strategy, every Iranian declaring his/her commitment to the national Constitution, will be entitled to participate in all the current affairs including the government issues as a first-degree citizen," he added.

Ramezanzadeh said that this is the right sought by Kurdish reformists, not only for themselves, but for all Iranian citizens.

"We believe that the government is expected to restore the citizens rights, irrespective of their race, religion, ethics and administer justice for them.

"The reform parties have not yet reached agreement on a single presidential candidate," he added.

Turning to the change of electoral atmosphere in the provinces over the past weeks, he said that harsh political dynamism has given way to a momentum paving the way for the June elections.

The Second Kurdish Reform Conference was held in Kermanshah, attended by a number of Kurdish reformists from West Azarbaijan, Kurdestan, Ilam and Kermanshah provinces.
