Pour-Mohammadi to focus on investment, economy

Presidential hopeful Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi says he will focus on capital management and production sector investments if he wins the June election.

Pour-Mohammadi, who is affiliated with the Principlist Coalition of Five, also promised to fight economic and financial corruption.

The former interior minister, who currently heads the General Inspection Office of Iran, added that dealing with unemployment and economic issues plays a key role in the sovereignty of a country.

The Coalition of Five also includes former foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, vice speakers of Iran Majlis, Mohammad-Reza Bahonar and Mohammad-Hassan Aboutorabi-Fard, and head of Tehran Chamber of Commerce Yahya Al-e Eshaq.

Hassan Sobhani, another presidential hopeful, promised to reform the budget planning process if he wins the presidential race.

Sobhani, who has served as a two-time lawmaker, said production would top his agenda in a bid to tackle unemployment and inflation.

Iran’s 11th presidential election will be held on June 14, and presidential hopefuls can register from May 7 to 11.

The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term in a national election and candidates must be vetted for qualifications by the Guardian Council.
