Tehran Times Political Desks
TEHRAN (MNA) –- The Followers of the Imam’s Path and Leadership Front (FIPLF) are united in their position on the candidacy of Expediency Council Chairman Hashemi Rafsanjani in the upcoming presidential election and the Islamic Coalition Party (ICP) also favors his candidacy, ICP member Hamid Reza Taraqi said on Monday.

In response to a Mehr News Agency correspondent’s question as to why Rafsanjani’s name was not on a list of potential presidential candidates prepared by FIPLF, Taraqi stated that during a recent meeting Rafsanjani himself underlined the need to field other candidates.

However, the situation would be completely altered if Rafsanjani decided to run, he said."
