He’s Back!! Dr. Ahmadinejad to Run in 2017 Presidential Election
ed note, MG–I’ll state with great pride that I was made aware months ago of Dr. Ahmadinejad’s plans to run by his ‘people’ who wanted to share with me this great news but about which I have kept quiet up until now.
In a variation of what Dr. Ahmadinejad said to me face to face in my meeting with him in his home in Tehran back in November of 2015 when we were discussing Mike Piper (may he rest in peace) ‘God bless and protect this great man’.
Former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced that he will run in the spring 2017 presidential election, Shargh daily reported on Tuesday.
The former speaker for [Dr.]Ahmadinejad’s government, Gholam-Hossein Elham, informed the board responsible for the election of Dr. Ahmadinejad’s intention to stand, the report said.
Dr. Ahmadinejad is expected to launch his comeback campaign.
He appeared for the first time in public this year on Monday when he gave a speech in Narmak mosque in Tehran, but he neither confirmed nor denied his comeback plan, despite enthusiastic calls from his supporters.
The hardline president, who held office from 2005 to 2013, signaled his desire to return to politics in April and attacked current Iranian President Hassan Rohani as incompetent.
Following the drubbing they received in February’s parliamentary elections, the hardliners are now pinning their hopes on [Dr.] Ahmadinejad, convinced that only he can prevent reformist Rohani’s re-election.
