Mr. Rohani is still better

Reader comment on item: Rooting for Jalili

Submitted by Amit Srivastava (India), Jun 16, 2013 at 11:54

Mr. Rohani could be hand-picked of the clergy, including that of Mr. Khamenei, as it appears from the vetted candidacy: one moderate and five conservatives. It help divided conservatives. If this is not the case even then a masked opponent is still better than an overt opponent as far as Iran is concerned.

One not only has to be optimistic but should also believe in the non-linerality of the space-time. Also, all societies, including Iran, have distributions. Therefore, if a moderate is a President then it is good for all. As far as improving economic situation in Iran is concerned, Mr. Rohani cannot improve much as long as the US-led West puts sanctions on Iran. And they are not going to be eased unless and until Iran compromises on its nuclear position. That puts responsibility on Mr. Khamenei and in very near future this is not going to happen. But still, the future of Iran is brighter under Mr. Rohani.
