Conservative lawmakers to Meet Moussavi 8/3/04

Mellat Electronic Newspaper: "MPs to Meet Moussavi

TEHRAN - A group of conservative lawmakers have decided to meet with former prime minister Mir-Hossein Moussavi, an MP said.
The Imam Khomeini Followers Faction will schedule a meeting in coming weeks.
"We will try our best to bolster a unity among the reformists," Esmael Gerami-Moqaddam told ISNA.
Iran's embattled reformists say they will back Mousavi in presidential elections scheduled for June 2005.
Mousavi served in the now-defunct position of prime minister from 1981 to 1989. Seen as a leftist within the Islamic republic, he was also a former foreign minister and was close to Iran's revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
He has largely kept out of politics since Imam Khomeini's death in 1989.The second and final term in office of Iran's incumbent president, embattled pro-reform cleric Mohammad Khatami, ends in June 2005.
