Azerbaijan, Baku, May29 / Trend F.Eminli /
Iranian MP Ahmad Tavakkoli says the next president should be experienced in running the country in high levels, so those candidates who are not so experienced should leave the presidential race.
According to ILNA, Tavakkoli said that the president should be a prominent political and religious figure and should have experience in macro management.
"If we transfer the power incorrectly to any of the candidates, we have indeed repeated the previous mistakes," he said. "The country's economic situation is not favorable. It is facing with inflammatory recession."
Tavakkoli didn't mentioned any name, but before this, some Iranian MPs called people to avoid voting to Saeed Jalili, who hasn't had any executive post.
Jalili is Iran's representative in nuclear talks with six major powers.
"Mismanagements in the country and enmity of some countries with the Iranian nation through imposing economic sanctions have led to a negative growth rate and an inflation rate of above 32 percent, Tavakkoli said.
"The country's unstable foreign currency market has been without a proper management for about 1.5 years. This issue has unbalanced the national economy."
Iran's national currency, rial, dropped in value by more than 40 percent during last 1.5 years.
Former vice president Mohammad Reza Aref, MP Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel, Supreme National Security Council Secretary Saeed Jalili, Expediency Council Secretary Mohsen Rezaei, Hassan Rohani, the director of the Strategic Research Centre of the Expediency Council, Tehran Mayor
Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf, former Telecommunications Minister Mohammad Gharazi, and former Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Velayati are the eight candidates who will compete in the presidential race.
Iran will hold the eleventh presidential elections on June 14, 2013.
