Ahmadinejad’s advantages and disadvantages; what should the next President of Iran be like

Thursday, 4 April 2013

Majlis Executive Committee Member, Javad Jahangirzadeh, cited the words of the Supreme Leader, who stressed that the next president should have the good characteristics of the current President and disassociate himself from his disadvantages, adding that the shortcomings of Ahmadinejad’s leadership include ignoring the existence of laws, opposition to laws, dictatorship, and mistreatment of clerics and religious laws, and that the next President needs to keep well away from such characteristics. In a similar manner, Mojtaba Zolnuri, Advisor to the Supreme Leader’s representative in the IRGC, praised Ahmadinejad’s government for being “hard working” and “firm on the nuclear issue.” He further praised the President for “leading a modest lifestyle.” However, Zolnuri criticized Ahmadinejad for being “self-centered… This characteristic has been quite evident during his presidency… It led to confrontation of the three branches and lack of cooperation among them. The government’s inflexibility in numerous cases upset the Supreme Leader.” He also held the President responsible for “failing to defer to the Supreme Leader’s orders and guidelines and for “failing follow the guiding principle of the sources of emulation.” Zolnur also criticized Ahmadinejad for “being influenced by certain people (probably referring to Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei).”
