Motahari: If I am Not Qualified, I Don’t Know Who Is

Controversial candidate Ali Motahari told Fararu today that he expects his candidacy to be approved by the Guardian Council, saying “If I am not a rajol-e siasi [political person], I don’t know who is”. Motahari’s comments were in response to a question regarding his previous disqualification for running for parliament, and referenced the constitutional term believed to have been used in the past to exclude women. In the same interview, Motahari said that he expected the nuclear issue to be resolved soon, after which the situation in Iran should improve.
