Tehran, YJC. A would-be presidential candidate says that the economic pattern established during the Hashemi administration caused turmoil across country, to resolve which the government then adopted a policy of settlement, rather than adjustment.

Speaking at the University of Shiraz, Alireza Zakani said that unfitting Western patterns have exposed the Islamic society to harms, adding "With this model, there appeared a kind of short-sightedness in politics and slackness in culture, leading to the cultural invasion, overriding the morale for jihad and martyrdom which had reached its peak during the Holy Defense.”

He added "The economical pattern which the Hashemi administration undertook lead to chaos and tumult in some provinces due to inflation. Then the government was forces to replace a policy of adjustment with one of settlement.”

Zakani then added "The situation paved the way for Khatami. On the surface it seemed that the Khatami administration was formed in criticism of the Hashemi administration. But Rafsanjani said in an interview in 2005 that if I were where Khatami is I too would have taken the same path as him.”

"After the Revolution, blots of corruption appeared in the country. But during the construction administration strange things happened. The wrongly-adopted Western pattern helped corruption breach into the administrative system of the country and defense for the corrupted officials made the blots grow into webs of corruption.”

He then added that the process continued until 2001,when an agreement was made between the Judiciary and Executive branches which lead to the Supreme Leader’s 8-part decree.
