Khatami has dropped out of Iran’s “elections” in June. Link here.
Mohammad Khatami said last month that he would run in June, ending weeks of speculation, the state-run IRNA news agency reported February 8.
But he now says he will instead support moderate candidate Mir Hossein Moussavi, Fars reported Monday.
Moussavi is a former prime minister. Before Khatami declared his candidacy last month, he had said either he or Moussavi would run as the reformist candidate to challenge Ahmadinejad, a hardliner.
Khatami said he will soon make an official statement regarding his withdrawal.
