In an interview with the Mehr News Agency published on Tuesday, Haqshenas said that the first priority of the reformist front had been inviting Khatami and endorsing his possible candidacy.

If Khatami rules out his candidacy, the reformists will seek to reach a consensus on a single candidate, which would probably be Rafsanjani, he said, adding, "If a consensus is not reached, Mostafa Kavakebian will be the candidate of the reformist front."
