Mostafa Moin's spokesperson, Elaheh Koulaei here Friday said that he will issue a statement on Saturday to inform the public whether he will run for the upcoming 9th Presidential Election.

She told IRNA that the statement is expected to come out after assessing the views of those involved in his nationwide
constituencies, the political parties and groups supporting him as well as consulting intellectuals and the educated.

His supporters and officials in charge of his constituencies in a meeting on Thursday expressed their views about the prospect of his running for the election or quitting.

Moin's qualifications were confirmed by Guardian Council (GC) after the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordered it through a letter addressed to the GC.

Whether Moin will accept the procedure by which his qualifications were eventually approved is the main subject of discussion among his proponents, critics and rivals."
