Iran's presidential policies criticized by reformists

At the 10th party congress held by the Iran’s reformist Participation Front, the group’s secretary-general, Mohsen Mirdamadi, criticized President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “unbelievable” contempt for democracy in the country, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported today.

Mirdamadi said that Ahmadinejad acts like “the greatest defender of democracy” in the world, while continually denouncing democracy and party politics in Iran.
