Principlists may conditionally back Rouhani for next term: Bahonar

July 13, 2016

TEHRAN -- Principlists may conditionally support Hassan Rouhani in the next year's presidential campaigns, Mohammad Reza Bahonar, a key principlist figure, has said.

"Rouhani is one of the options that principlists are considering," Bahonar told the Iran newspaper in an interview published on Tuesday.

Bahonar underlined that the condition is that Rouhani devise a way out of economic stagnation, or at least open windows of hope that the economic recession is going to end.
