Iranian opposition leader advised Islamic Republic authorities to return to the models set up by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the system, and base their policies on the "collective wisdom" in order to remedy the recent events.

Mir Hossein Mousavi , speaking in a meeting with the members of the minority faction of Iran's parliament claimed that if in the post-election events, they had drawn upon the "collective wisdom" rather than holding on to the dictates of a single faction, "we would not have witnessed such bitter incidents."

The former Prime Minister of Iran also condemned the actions of the country's national broadcasting Seda va Sima saying that they are "destroying the doctrines of the Imam (Khomeini)" which has led to a "wrong and incomplete understanding of Ayatollah Khomeini," the leader of the Revolution, by the country's youth.

He also added: "In my opinion Seda va Sima and the foreign media have been acting like the two edges of a pair of scissors in distorting the luminous face of the Imam."

The disputing candidate of Iran's June presidential elections told the reformist members of the Parliament that "one of the reasons for the effectiveness of the regime in the time of Ayatollah Khomeini and the ability of the country to pass through the crises of the time" was the direct connection of the people with the regime, the government and the leadership.

He claimed that during the leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini, decisions were made through "rational discussions" and the Imam "provided a basis for the presence of different factions and opinions without barring anyone's presence."

Mir Hossein Mousavi was highly favoured by the late Ayatollah Khomeini who chose him for the position of prime minister at the time of Iran-Iraq War in the eighties. Experts credit Mousavi with a successful handling of the country's economy at a time of deep crisis.

His attempt at returning to power in the June presidential elections were defeated by what the opposition claims to have been widespread fraud in the ballot.

Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, another presidential candidate, claim Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's government is "illegitimate" because it has seized power through election fraud. They have announced they will continue fighting against the outcome of the June elections through legal means.

Ahmadinejad's opponents contend that the Islamic Republic has been derailed and wandered far away from the objectives of the founder of the system, Ayatollah Khomeini. They maintain that their reformist agenda is an attempt to remedy the system's deviations.
