Azerbaijan, Baku, May.26 / Trend F.Karimov/

Iran presidential candidate Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf has said that the country needs a reform in the administrative and executive section, IRIB reported.

The country's financial problems are partly due to the outdated and inefficient administrative system, Qalibaf said.

The country is not run by talkativeness. It needs wisdom. We have good capacities in the country, but some misunderstandings have caused problems in running the country, he said.

We had already been grappling with mismanagement before we faced sanctions, Qalibaf noted.

The former commander of the Iranian police, former commander of the "IRGC" and the Iranian army, the current mayor of Tehran, Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf is also a member of the Coalition of Three.

Gholam Ali Haddad-Adel and Ali Akbar Velayati are the other two members of the principlist coalition.

Qalibaf has said that he will be able to restore stability to the country within two years.

He said people should vote for the new president based on his accomplishments rather than his plans and programs.

Iran's presidential election will be held on June 14.

The voters will select 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 a national election and the Guardian Council vets the candidates for qualifications.
