Conservative candidate in the elections of the presidency of Iran

Iran’s conservative presidential candidate Mustafa Merslim has said he will not withdraw from the presidential race for any of the other candidates, in response to calls by three conservative candidates who hope to withdraw at least two candidates or a candidate to prevent the split.

Merslim, who heads the central consultative council of a combined party, told Iranian websites that he had contested the elections based on his experiences in order to win over his rivals.

Iran’s Fars news agency quoted the conservative candidate as saying he would abide by the nuclear deal and said Iran had been unfair in the nuclear deal, but said the achievements of the nuclear deal would not be realized.

He considered that one of his priorities in the presidential elections serve the disadvantaged and reduce the unemployment rate, especially in disadvantaged areas, stressing the need for Iranians to enjoy their rightful place.
