As Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani’s candidacy broke the arrangement among Iran’s presidential candidates, his withdrawal did the same too.
Four Pincipalist candidates are Ali Akbar Velayati, Muhammad Baqer Qalibaf and Haddad Adel who are three members of the Progressive Coalition or the Coalition of 2+1 who seem to be open to Saeed Jalili joining them.
Presidential hopeful Saeed Jalili said in his first campaign speech on Friday that he will continue “Iran’s foreign policy of seeking to extend the influence of Islam in the world.”

What Will Happen To The Reformists if Hashemi Rafsanjani Gets Disqualified?
Iran’s presidential hopeful, Kamran Bagheri Lankarani withdraw in favor of Saeed Jalili, the secretary of Iran’s National Security Council.
The statement of Kadkhodaei could be a warning for the 78 year old two-term former president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani whom his old age has been the target of criticism by his rivals and authorities.
Iranian people don’t have a negative memory of him, because he was never involved in domestic politics. While Hashemi’s past is filled with failures (of course along with successes) and this can be a winner for Jalili, as it was for Ahmadinejad in 2005 when his opponent was Hashemi.
