Kamaleddin Sajadi, Secretary General of the Islamic Society of Employees, said in an interview with Mehr News Agency "The reasons for the Principalist defeat must be investigated. But the most important one was Ahmadinejad’s administrative plans, because there were extremes in them which lead people away to another candidate.”
He believed that the multiplicity of Principalist candidates was another reason for their defeat and demanded a change of modus operandi in the Principalist camp.
He asserted "Anyway, revisions must be made in Principalist’s strategies and they must think more of unity and avoid disagreement.”
He also pointed to the hypothetic next cabinet and hoped that members would be chosen based on their capabilities and regardless of what political party they belong to.
