Gharazi: If I Become President, I Will Reduce Inflation to Zero
Independent candidate Mohammad Gharazi stated in an interview that if elected, he would reduce inflation to zero. Inflation has long been a problem for the Iranian economy, due to sanctions and economic mismanagement. When asked how he would achieve this, Gharazi said that he would “deprive the rent-seekers of political power; the political, economic and nefarious rent-seekers must be pushed back so that the people can take their place, and this is a very simple step”. Gharazi was previously a surprise candidate in the 2013 election who made similar claims then as now.
