Dariush Ghanbari, the former spokesman for the reformist deputies, said the reformist political parties in Iran are currently reviewing the conditions and they don’t have any noticeable activities for the next presidential election scheduled to be held on next Persian year. The previous election for the same post on 2009 turned into a great opposition against Islamic Republic system where people accused the government of ‘stealing’ their votes.
“The incentives of reformist parties to participate in the next election are the main subject. If they receive positive views from the system, they will announce their candidates and nominees. So I must say that reformists don’t have any notable activities for racing in election.” Dariush Ghanbari outlined.
“Actually reformists are not interested to join this upcoming election because the situation is not okay for them. Conservatives are in top favor of system and we don’t have equal and same chance against them. Of course the presence of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Seyyed Mohammad Khatami can help the nation but we must see what happen in future.” the former member of Majlis added.
