Rafsanjani: Holding of Free and Transparent Election is the First Step to Balance the Community

Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the head of Expediency Council who is under pressures from hardliners parties, said the current problems of the country will be resolved if Iranian government hold a free, fair and transparent presidential election on next Persian year. He also censured the policies of the dominant political party in the last years which were opposed with national interests.

Being loyal to Islamic Republic’s constitution and avoiding the elimination of compassionate politicians are some ways to balance the community of Iranians, according to Hashemi Rafsanjani. Currently there are many debates between conservative and reformist parties in the country.

Hardliner groups have labeled the former president of Islamic Republic of Iran as a major supporter of Iran’s opposition groups due to his policies against current government. “The problems will be resolved if we hold a free and transparent election because it attracts people to cooperate with the next government and vote on the upcoming presidential election.”

Rafsanjani was elected chairman of the Iranian parliament in 1980 and served until 1989. Rafsanjani also served as president of Iran from 1989 to 1997. In 2005 he ran for a third term in office, placing first in the first round of elections but ultimately losing to rival Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the run-off round of the 2005 election.
