Speaking at a meeting with members of Tehran City Council, Rezaei believed that the central Iranian government is unable to administer the country, adding "Reconstructions must be carried out in the central government. It must get rid of non-political phenomena such as arts, culture, sports, and religion. The government and politics must not interfere with these things. Ethics and religion must not become politicized, because that has originated all current confrontations and disagreements.”
According to Asr-e-Iran news website Secretary of the Expediency Council said that a central government, economic federalism, and local administrations will be three basic features of his would-be administrations and added that using these three ideas, the country will be able to move toward a desirable government.
