HAMBASTEGI Endorses Karroubi

Iran Daily: "Presidential Aspirant

HAMBASTEGI: Former Majlis Speaker Mehdi Karroubi is among the top ten personalities of the Islamic system. He is a freedom fighter who was on several occasions jailed during the former monarchical regime. Along with the rest of the people of the country, he chanted slogans in favor of the Islamic Revolution in 1979. He has always lived a simple life and obeyed the guidelines of the late Imam. During all these years, he displayed a great deal of patience. Now once again he wants to hold a top post in the Islamic system. Karroubi has never asked for too much and never succumbed to the ill wishes of the Great Satan of our times, namely the US. This time around Karroubi has real effective socioeconomic, political and cultural plans as a presidential nominee."
