He said Khatami and his reformist followers bluffed when they threatened to exit the regime through mass resignations. * Tehran-based reformist journalist Ahmad Zeydabadi tells <b>Radio Farda</b> that Khatami had said that it would not be necessary to remain in office after the rejection of his reform bills by the GC. Zeydabadi says the rejection of these bills would mean an end to the reform movement and would show that the regime cannot be reformed.

He adds that several other Democratic Front activists and supporters were sentenced to jail terms from 3 to 8 years.
