Mousavi to Choose Principlist Ministers

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian presidential hopeful Mir Hossein Mousavi will choose some of his cabinet ministers from the Principlist camp if elected as president in June 12 election, his campaign manager Qorban Behzadiannejad said on Sunday.



"Mir-Hossein Mousavi stresses the importance of using the expertise of both camps in running the country's affairs," Behzadiannejad added in a news conference.

Asked if the campaign slogan 'Reformist Principlist' used by Mousavi is similar to the term used by Tehran Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf as his political motto, he said Mousavi insists on reform and he wants the country to change based on principles and values of the Islamic Revolution.

Qalibaf, considered as a centrist Principlist, has recently announced that he will not be running for the presidency.

Mousavi is expected to face fellow Reformist and former Parliament Speaker Mehdi Karroubi and incumbent Principlist President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran's June 12 presidential elections.
