TEHRAN (FNA)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei urged President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to plan on keeping the top job for a second four-year term but called on him to keep better control of inflation.
“Do not think that this year is your last year as head of the government. No. Act as if you will stay in charge for five years,” the Leader told members of the government on Saturday.
“Imagine that this year, plus the four that follow, you will be in charge, and plan and act accordingly,” he said.
“The government of Ahmadinejad has stopped the process of Westernization and secularization that had begun to infiltrate the decision-making processes of the country,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
