Ali Eshraghi. The grandson of Khomeini, questioned Iran's politics

The revolutionary founder of Iran's Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, strongly opposed the involvement of the military in political life, his grandson Ali Eshraghi said. In an interview with Adnkronos International (AKI), Ali Eshraghi was speaking about the legacy of Khomeini after he was reinstated as a candidate for the Iran's parliamentary elections to be held on 14 March.

Ali Eshraghi will be a candidate for the Mosharekat Eslami party, founded by his brother-in-law, Mohammad Reza Khatami, younger brother of former president Mohammad Khatami. Ali Eshraghi did not use the term isolation to describe his country's position in the world but spoke of “a very difficult moment" and added that "even the government has contributed to this situation". He said the situation could be improved and tensions reduced if control was passed to representatives freely elected by the people.
