TEHRAN, Dec. 28 (MNA) –- A leading member of the Assembly of Combatant Clerics (ACC), Majid Ansari, said on Tuesday that the ACC supports the candidacy of former Majlis speaker Mahdi Karrubi for president but Karrubi himself has not yet made any announcement on the proposal.
All parities and groups within the Second of Khordad front will try to reach a consensus over a single candidate, Ansari remarked.

“The reformist camp will try to have a single plan and select a qualified candidate for presidential elections,” Ansari who acts as vice president for parliamentary and legal affairs told reporters.

An elected president should be at the service of all walks of people and have proper plans for implementing the articles of the Fourth Development Plan, the reformist cleric noted."
