Khatami promises to work for '\'free and fair'\' elections
Iran's President Mohammad Khatami has vowed to do "everything possible" to deliver "free and fair" parliamentary elections in February, in spite of his failure to push through a key electoral reform bill, the official IRNA news agency reported.
"We have to give people the assurance that their votes will be respected," Khatami was quoted as telling a gathering in Andimeshk on Tuesday.
The President added the run-up to the February 20, 2004 elections was a "very sensitive historical juncture". (Albawaba.com)
