TEHRAN - Mohammad Reza Bahonar, the vice speaker in the outgoing parliament, has shown interest to enter talks with reformists, the Etemad newspaper reported on Saturday. 

Bahonar further highlighted the importance of political parties, saying a party system automatically acts as a filter for qualification of individuals running for parliament.

He also said if some principlists opposed to the nuclear deal were not in the candidate list probably the result of parliamentary elections would have been different.
