Iran’s Reformists Send Official Letter to Supreme Leader

The conservative Member of Parliament, Asadollah Badamchian, said despite the existence of disagreements between different reformist groups in Iran, they have sent a letter to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and urged him to allow Mohammad Khatami to take part in the upcoming presidential election.

Reports suggest the letter had been written by Khatami and Akbar Rafsanjani, the Chairman of Expediency Council, has delivered it to Ali Khamenei. However other reports say the letter was brought by the fans of Khatami to the Leader. Accordingly Mohammad Khatami is seeking for a green light to announce his nomination for the highest post of the country, but currently he is banned to do this because of his role in the incidents happened after the tenth presidential election in the country.

“We will hold two elections at the same time and it’s been expected that many people will vote on these elections. The government must be aware about the outcomes of the elections if reformist groups decide to compete for them.” said Asadollah Badamchian, a major Iranian politician.

The eleventh election of the President of Iran is scheduled to be held on 14 June 2013 to elect the seventh President, successor of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is barred from standing for a third term. The elections will take place on the same day as local council elections.
