MP: No Coalition with President for Next Majlis Election

The reason, he said in remarks published Wednesday, is that Ahmadinejad continues to support his inner circle and, therefore, will never enter into an "election union" that might diminish the odds of his closest associates winning office.

Several months ago, before escalation of disputes between Ahmadinejad and his opponents, the president and the principlists formed a committee to look into the possibility of nominating common candidates for the March 2012 Majlis elections, but their differences have proven too deep to overcome.

Hamid Reza Taraghi, another influential member of the Islamic Coalition Party, opined that "moderate reformists" will form a coalition with supporters of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. He predicted that the "extremist reformists" will not participate in the election, and likened them to both the "perverted group" and the Kargozaaraan (Executives of Reconstruction Party), a group of Rafsanjani supporters who opposed the principlists in the elections for the Fifth Majlis in 1996.

Taraghi also said that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has appointed a commission to investigate the reasons for "the government repeatedly breaking the laws."

According to Taraghi, the Supreme Leader cannot allow the trend to continue, because it will hurt the political system and the people. He added, "The friction between the different branches of the system has never been higher than at present -- it is more severe even than during the era of [Abolhassan] Bani Sadr," the first president of the Islamic Republic, who was impeached in 1981 and fled the country shortly after.

According to Speaker Ali Larijani, Ayatollah Khamenei has emphasized that is the right of the Majlis to question and even impeach the president, but that he prefers that the deputies and administration officials not publicize their differences. Larijani said that the plan to question Ahmadinejad has been postponed for now.
