Tehran, YJC. Reformist Lawmaker has said that no coalition is predictable in the Reform Front if Khatami leaves the stage.

Majid Nasirpour said "If Khatami does not run no coalition will be made and we can be sure from now that the second candidate will lose.”

Answering a question whether the Reform Front will support Rohani in the absence of Khatami, he said "Mr. Rohani enjoys a good status among the Reformist. He can be a good choice for candidature, but once he takes part in the campaigns he will have a hard job to win rivals.”

He asserted "The Iranian will not vote for somebody based on his advocacy. They choose the person they have in mind.”

He also believed that Khatami and Hashemi’s endorsement of a candidate will be of little consequence, saying "The endorsement of a candidate by well-known people will not change the election outcome.”
