Reformists Need to Readjust

Recent anti-government protests targeting the reformists, among other factions, underscores the need for new reforms in the camp to regain a popular base, a lawmaker said.
Iran's political landscape is split between two main factions, namely conservatives and reformists, with the latter allied with the moderate government of President Hassan Rouhani. The support by reformists has been instrumental in Rouhani's victories over his main conservative challengers in the two last presidential polls.
They could also win many seats in the latest parliamentary elections in 2016, although short of having an outright majority. But reformists, who are barely represented in Rouhani's second-term Cabinet, have grown more critical of his performance in recent months, complaining the administration is not doing enough to fulfill Rouhani's electoral pledges.
