LONDON, May 28 (IranMania) - Till the very last moment, I hesitated to nominate myself, wishing that others would shoulder the responsibility. But under the current conditions, I feel obliged by faith to run for the post,“ Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani told a group of MPs.

According to a report by Rafsanjani’s office, the head of State Expediency Council emphasized the need for all three branches of the government to interact with one another properly for the sake of the system.

“I’m working for politically strong parliament, believing that a chaotic parliament in which political disputes erupt too often is an obstacle to the country’s development,“ he said."
