Current term of Expediency Discernment Council ends up on coming February

New attempts to expunge Hashemi from the power

Few months to ending the current term of fifth Expediency Discernment Council, the supporters of Ali Khamenei have intensified their criticisms from the Council and have asked for Council's breakup.

As reported by Parsineh conservative website, the fifth term of Expediency Discernment Council will end up till coming February, a month before the ninth parliament elections.

The website wrote that "expunging Hashemi Rafsanjani from the Expediency Discernment Council by Ali Khamenei at the sixth term of the Council "will be an ending seal on his political life in the Islamic Republic".

The website wrote this issue after Mohammad Dehqan, the conservative member of the parliament suggested the Council breakup yesterday.

This suggestion is being proposed after Ali Khamenei talked about the possibility of changing the political structure of the Islamic Republic in future.

Subsequently, Hashemi reacted against the omission of presidency from the political system of Iran and warned against "weakening the republic" and changing the Constitution by such a plan.

Conservative supporters of Khamenei are anger with the positioning of Hashemi and some other members of the Council about post election events.

They welcome Hashemi's omission or the Council breakup both of which will lead to "political death" of the previous chairman of the Assembly of Experts.

Jafar Shajuni, a clergyman close to Mohammad Reza Mahdavi Kani said on Tuesday (October 25) that "the Expediency Discernment Council not only was helpful after 2009 elections, but it functioned in contrast to the regime".

Shajuni has added that "some members of the Expediency Discernment Council were sunk in their activities after 2009 elections. They registered for the Devil party and they questioned their former activities and functions".

This member of Combatant Clergy Association stated that "those who cannot discern their own expediency cannot discern the expediency of the regime".
