Hmmm: Mousavi to form new political group

Mir-Hossein Mousavi’s top advisor, Ali-Reza Beheshti, said reformists would pursue their case against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by forming a political front that will have all the rights of a political party except being able to call for rallies…

The Islamic Iran Participation Front, a reformist political grouping, has been operating for years but has been unable able to break through Iran’s legal and political restrictions to obtain and exercisepower. But the reformist cause could be strengthened with the help of Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a powerful cleric who is a pillar of Mousavi’s support.

Rafsanjani said he would endorse Mousavi’s plan for a “united moderation front,” according to Mohammad Hashemi, his brother. “He had even formulated the charter to a certain extent but this front did not materialize for certain reasons,” he told ILNA.
