Mohammad Reza Bahonar, Deputy Majlis Speaker, said that “There is no doubt that Hashemi’s (Rafsanjani, Head of the Expediency Council and former president) candidacy for the (upcoming presidential) election will be his biggest political mistake. Should Hashemi Rafsanjani run, Hassan Rouhani (a senior member of Iran’s Expediency Council and presidential hopeful) will definitely step aside. Bahonar stressed the importance of a high voter turnout in the upcoming election.
