Advisor to Incoming Iranian President Promises Moderation
Iran's President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who is due to be sworn in as president on August 4, has been described as ultra-conservative. But his advisor, Mehdi Kalhor, speaking to a German-based Iranian satellite TV station (MITV) last night said, Ahmadinejad will ask police not to harass men and women over what they wear and how they interact. Ahmadinejad, according to one of his advisors, will do his best to ensure the state does not interfere in people's private lives.
He also added that Ahmadinejad will work to stop censorship. He said Ahmadinejad believes evevry one in Iran should be free to watch satellite television.
Currently, owners of satellite dishes in Iran periodically have their equipment confiscated and risk being fined.
Kalhor also said Ahmadinejad intends to reach out to Iranian artists and singers currently based abroad, including women.
