Naimeh Eshragqi, granddaughter to Imam Khomeini, said in an interview with Fars News Agency "The plans put forward in the talks were good ones, but I believe that economic plans relate to international relations as well, so the to-be President must adopt a policy of détente.”
Asked what choice she would make between Aref and Rohani, she siad "We are waiting to see whom Mr. Khatami endorses. My choice, though, will probably be Mr. Aref.”
"Mr. Aref is the Reformists’ candidate. But that does not mean that Mr. Rohani is not a good choice,” Eshraqi added.
Providing comments on a coalition between Aref and Rohani, she stated "I care for a coalition. Principalists also had better had made coalition, because an election with 8 candidates will cause the to-be President to lack majority vote.”
Her comments come one day after the Reform Minister of Intelligence had said that Hashemi and Khatami endorse Rohani.
