Iran: Former President Khatami Rallies Votes For Reformists In Second Round


Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami is calling on Iranian voters to support the Rohani administration in the second round of parliamentary elections.

In a statement, Khatami highlights the sensitivity of the elections and urges even those who did not go to the polls in the first round to now vote in support of the moderate factions of the government.

The second round of elections will take place on Friday April 29 to determine the fate of 69 of the 290 seats in Parliament, which could have a pivotal effect on the makeup of the coming Parliament.

Many reformist candidates were disqualified by the Guardian Council in the qualification stage. However, the reformists managed to come up with a candidate list and rally widespread support though social media especially in Tehran.

Reformists and supporters of President Rohani’s administration are hoping to repeat the same success in the second round.
