Next administration must deal with pressing issues: Rezaei

Presidential candidate Mohsen Rezaei says the next administration will have to deal with a number of pressing issues in both domestic and foreign policy.

Talking to people in the southwestern city of Ahvaz in Khuzestan Province, the independent candidate said the next administration would have to deal with the Western sanctions, economic maladies and political disputes all at the same time.

Rezaei said he would settle all these issues with the help of a multi-party administration that would represent the entire nation.

The presidential candidate added that he would not make any deals with other candidates and would stay in the race as an independent candidate.

Rezaei, who is now secretary of the Expediency Council, is competing against seven rivals, namely Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili, President of the Center for Strategic Research of the Expediency Council Hassan Rohani, lawmaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel, Tehran Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, former Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Velayati, 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. This year’s election will be held on June 14.

Nearly 50.5 million Iranians are eligible to vote in the upcoming presidential election.
