Reformists prepare to take on Ahmadinejad and his militias | Iran | Guardian Unlimited
The legislature, the Majlis, voted last week to trim Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s term and hold the next presidential and parliamentary polls simultaneously next year. The change, it is argued, will be cost efficient and will reduce the potential for fraud – a reason, critics say, why the government opposes the move.

Mr Atrianfar claimed that despite the positive impression created by the president’s “stage-managed” provincial tours and financial handouts, most Iranians no longer supported him. “Everyone says he talks bullshit,” he said. “Even in parliament, out of 290 MPs, about 210 supported him. Now more than 200 disagree with him, including many fundamentalists. If the Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] stopped backing him, parliament would impeach him in a week. He’s not dangerous. He’s just a little man with an IQ below zero.”
