Rafsanjani Meets 7 Political Party Leaders

Expediency Council Chairman Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani met with senior representatives of seven major political parties on Monday.
Issues concerning the general policies of elections, which are being drawn up at the council, were discussed at the meeting, IRNA reported.  
Rafsanjani told the secretary generals of the reformist, principlist and independent parties that the new effort is expected to lead to drawing up "comprehensive policies and fair laws" that could ease concerns related to the conduct of elections in the future.
He said, "Members of the council are discussing various aspects with regard to drafting the policies, thanks to the positive and free atmosphere that prevails in our meetings."  
Elsewhere, the former president criticized actions and "irresponsible interference" that might negatively affect turnout in elections.   
The Expediency Council started examining the general policies on elections in late November after the Leader of the Islamic Revolution assigned the council the task of drafting a set of general policies on elections.
