Economy should be on top of next administration’s agenda: Haddad-Adel

Iranian presidential candidate Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel says putting the Iranian economy on the right track should be the top priority of the next administration.

The principlist candidate said on Monday that he would make efforts to stabilize the currency rate and create a calm atmosphere in the market if elected in the June presidential election.

Haddad-Adel said the unemployment issue could be solved through promotion of investment in the country.

The Iranian MP also made comments regarding foreign affairs, saying, his administration would seek reduction of tensions with other world states. He added that entering into dialog with the United States is possible if the US officials respect the Islamic Republic of Iran’s rights.

In Iran’s June 14 election, Haddad-Adel will be competing against Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili, former Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Velayati, Secretary of Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei, Tehran Mayor Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf, President of the Strategic Research Center of the Expediency Council Hassan Rohani, former First Vice President Mohammad-Reza Aref, and former Telecommunications Minister Mohammad Gharazi.

The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term in a national election, and the Guardian Council vets the candidates.
