The former Tabriz representative in the Majlis announced his candidacy for the upcoming presidential elections on Wednesday.
Akbar A’lami said that as there is no real Reformist candidate campaigning for the presidentials, he has decided to come to the scene as a Reformist, saying "It seems that some currents endorse entities as Reformist as always.”
He added "My slogan in the campaigns will be to ‘revive the Neauphle-le-Château charter’, on the details of which I will issue an announcement.”
He asserted "Every revolution goes on mottos and promises made by its leaders. Because the majority of the Revolution’s leaders’ promises and mottos were given in Neauphle-le-Château, I use the slogan ‘The Neauphle-le-Château Charter.”
He also asserted that he will campaign independently and without need for support from Khatami and Hashemi.
