Elias Naderan Plays into the Hands of Enemies of the Republic

Iran Mania News: "Tehran MP criticized Rafsanjani’s candidacy

LONDON, Dec 30 (IranMania) – Tehran MP, Elias Naderan on Wednesday lambasted the Iranian governments’ performance in the past 16 years saying: “Some by hiding their true objectives are trying to resume their past activities this time under the guise of support for ex-president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.”

According to Iran’s Mehr News Agency, Naderan, a member of the “Builders of an Islamic Iran”, said: “Despite the Iranian statesmen’s apparent concern for the implementation of justice, they have now distanced themselves from the original ideals of the Islamic Revolution, so much so that today the officials are not the least hurt by hearing the everyday news of the death of the homeless in the country under their rule.”

Implicitly referring to Rafsanjani’s economic policies during his tenure, Naderan added: “ Many officials who repeatedly called for social justice in Friday Prayer sermons, cunningly carried out policies that many Third World countries are still resisting, policies that are even criticized by the World Bank today.”

Naderan noted that people voted for Mohammad Khatami in protest to the ruined economy of the country. Naderan’s remarks come at a time when many in Iran consider Rafsanjani ‘Master of Reconstruction’, referring to his administration’s ‘economic amendments’.

Rafsanjani will in all probability run for the next presidential elections in Iran."
