Azerbaijan, Baku, Jun.2 /Trend F.Eminli/
Principlist candidate Gholam Ali Haddad-Adel said that he sees no reason to step aside in favor of other candidates ahead of the June 14 vote.
Addressing a press conference on Sunday, he said the principlist Coalition of Three can win the presidential race despite differences, arguing that these differences are not fundamental, the IRIB News Agency reported.
According to the lawmaker, the two other members of the Coalition, namely Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and Ali Akbar Velayati will continue their campaigns until the end, unless something extraordinary happens that convinces them to pick one member as the frontrunner.
Haddad-Adel also said that he will never give deadlines like other candidates for tackling economic problems.
"I don't claim to have the power to do a miracle," he explained.
Iran will hold the 11th presidential election on June 14, 2013.
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.
