Iranian President-elect, Hassan Rowhani, calls for more freedom
Wednesday 03 July 2013
The President-elect, Hassan Rowhani, has called for the government and the powerful clergy to end interference in the private lives of citizens, free up internet access and allow state media to be more open.
Mr Rowhani’s comments began to flesh out his message of moderation that contributed to his surprise election victory last month.
“A strong government does not mean a government that interferes and intervenes in all affairs,” said Mr Rowhani, who takes office early next month, replacing the hardline Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
