‹Principalists will align against Khatami›

A Principalist party says that Iran’s Principalists will get aligned against former president Khatami if he contests the election.

«The Principalists would adopt a united policy against Khatami if he returns to politics, though his victory sounds a bit far-fetched,» Secretary General of the Islamic Coalition Party Mohammad-Nabi Habibi told reporters on Wednesday.

The party is one of the major members of the Principalist camp. Habibi claimed an unlikely victory and a decrease in votes for the Reformist cleric in the upcoming 2009 presidential elections compared to his first victory in June 1997. 

There are suggestions that some Principalists prefer former president Mohammad Khatami to represent Reformists at the presidential race, which would boost the possibility of introducing the incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as their sole contender in the next presidential elections in June 2009.

Analysts, however, believe that the participation of multiple Reformist candidates would put the Principalist camp’s unity in jeopardy, causing several Principalists to run for president.

Former two-time president Khatami is on the horns of a dilemma, saying his bid for presidency counts on how far it can push justice and democracy in the country.

Addressing a host of students at Tehran University in mid December, Khatami said any candidate for the upcoming presidential vote must be able to determine to what extent the present mechanisms permit him to implement his plans.

The 65-year-old Reformist highlighted that «in case the possibility of implementing plans does not really exist… even the best and most comprehensive plans would fall flat on face when put into practice.»

Mohammad Khatami won the presidency in 1997 and 2001 with an overwhelming 20 million and 22 million votes respectively. President Ahmadinejad, a Principalist, won over 17 million votes in the second round of the 2005 elections.
