Mesbah Yazdi: Everyone must decide upon principlists during the upcoming presidential

Thursday, 11 April 2013

Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi, Head of the Imam Khomeini Research Institute, said that reformists do not stand a chance of succeeding in the upcoming presidential elections, “if in the elections the choice is between reformists or principlists, everyone must decide upon principlists and set aside their other opinions…” Mesbah Yazdi added, “Today the competition is among principlists, because reformists do not have a place among the people after the (2009) sedition (post-June 2009 presidential election protest). He added that the Guardian Council (screening the candidates) will probably not approve the reformists’ (current) candidates, and this is the reason why they are looking for a candidate with a clean and positive past.”
