Azerbaijan, Baku, May.28/ Trend R.Zamanov
The candidate for upcoming presidential elections in Iran, Mohsen Rezaei, has unveiled the main plans of his campaign platform for the upcoming election.
The independent candidate said that his future administration will turn the southern province of Hormuzgan into a special economic zone, the ISNA News Agency reported.
Rezaee highlighted his plans to fight poverty and unemployment.
He also argued that the fall in the value of the national currency shouldn't have happened, adding it is possible to fix the economy and restore the value of rial through proper planning.
He, however, warned that it cannot happen overnight.
Rezaei had previously said that corruption, bribery, and prejudice are rampant in the country.
Improving living standards of people alongside with maintaining national sovereignty is the political doctrine of Rezaei, the Tabnak website wrote.
Rezaei said earlier that Iran's economic problems have been made by mismanagement of Ahmadinejad's government.
Mohsen Rezaei is the former commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and the current Secretary of the Expediency Council.
Rezaei has repeatedly said in his speech that he will improve the economic situation in Iran and will lead the country to prosperity. He said that he knows a way to solve the country's problems and will be able to address them.
Iran will hold the 11th presidential elections on June 14, 2013. The voters will choose the successor of the current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is not able to participate in the elections for the third term according to the country's constitutional laws.
The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term in the national elections and the Guardian Council vets the candidates for qualifications.
