Mohammadreza Bahonar said Saturday evening in the Conference on Principalist Discourse in Urmia "There are industrious, revolutionary people among the Reformist and they must not be mistaken for the seditious.”
He also rejected words going around in the society saying there is no difference between the candidates and said "Contrary to these opinions I believe it is very important who is going to be President, since the government and President’s behavior has direct impact on people’s lives and penetrates deep into their homes.”
Bahonar pointed out that the upcoming elections will be a tri-polar one between the Principalist, government’s representative, and Reformists.
He also asked the Principalists and principalist coalitions to make consensus on one person prior to the application time.
The Majlis Deputy Speaker also addressed the possibilities of Hashemi’s candidacy and added "I advise him not to enter the elections front, but the matter is on the knees of the gods.”
