The secretary general of the Followers of the Line of Imam and Leader Front said Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has no intention to form a party.

Some members of the Followers of Velayat Faction intend to found a new party which will be named the followers party or front, Deputy Parliament Speaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar said in an interview with Fars news agency on Sunday.

“Some media outlets have said that the followers party or front belongs to Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, but I talked with him personally and Mr. Larijani said he is not involved in the party and has no intention to establish such a party,” Bahonar said.

“Mr. Larijani also said he will support any moderate party or front,” he added.
