Mahdavi-Kani backs Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, May 25 (MNA) - Ayatollah Mohammad-Reza Mahdavi-Kani, the secretary general of Society of Combatant Clergy, stated on Monday that he will vote for Ahmadinejad.

Mahdavi-Kani said he has decided to support Ahmadinejad after some examinations because he found him the most competent candidate.

 

The principlist Society of Combatant Clergy has stopped short of backing Ahmadinejad officially as some members of the group do not approve of the incumbent president’s policy. The society backs a candidate who can gain two-thirds of the members’ votes

 

Mahdavi-Kani said among the candidates no one gained the two-thirds of the votes needed.
