The Hope Faction, an alliance of reformists and government backers, will not nominate a candidate for the post of Majlis speaker in the election for the permanent presiding board of the assembly, which is expected on Wednesday, according to the spokesperson for the bloc. "Members of the faction will not field any candidate for the post of speaker," Mohammad Ali Vakili also told IRNA on Monday.
