Mohammad Javad Haqshenas provided comments on the Reform Front’s 3-stage agenda for presidential campaign and said "In the first stage the Front has invited and supported Seyyed Mohammad Khatami.”
He also said in an interview that in the second stage "If Reformists do not reach consensus, the Reform Front’s special candidate would be Mostafa Kavakebian.”
Regarding the third stage, Haqshenas said "It is expected that either Khatami or Hashemi would run for presidency. In case Khatami does not, it is highly probable that the Reform coalition, consisting of the Coordination Council and the Reform Front, would support Hashemi. In such circumstances it is unlikely that Kavakebian would continue his campaign.”
"If Kavakebian does not abide to Reformists’ coalition he will no longer represent the Front,” he asserted.
