Majid Mohtashami, who was talking about a recent meeting between the members of the Reformist Front and the Expediency Council chairman about the presidential election, said Rafsanjani highlighted the importance of promoting national solidarity and holding a free election and called for the participation of all groups and people in the election.

Rafsanjani also stated that some of the problems facing the country arose as a result of extremist measures taken by certain officials and strict international sanctions imposed on the country, Mohtashami told the Mehr News Agency.

The spokesman also said that the members of the front will meet with former president Mohammad Khatami in the near future to hold talks about the presidential election.

The Reformist Front has announced that it will support Khatami if he decides to contest the election or will field only one candidate in the case Khatami refuses to run for the presidency.
