Irania's Rafsanjani not to run in presidential elections

Former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani will not run in next year's presidential elections, ISNA news agency reported Sunday.

"I will definitely not run in the presidential elections," said the cleric.

Mohammad Khatami, who is the top candidate of the opposition wing has not yet declared his candidacy to run for the June 12, 2009, elections.

Rafsanjani was defeated by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the 2005 elections.

So far only Mehdi Karroubi from the Etemad Melli party has officially confirmed his nomination.
