TEHRAN, Aug. 13 (MNA) -- The National Confidence Party’s application for a license to conduct political activities was officially approved by the Interior Ministry here on Saturday. Former Majlis speaker Mahdi Karrubi is the secretary general of the party.
Karrubi promised to establish the party after finishing in third place behind Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and former Tehran Mayor Mahmud Ahmadinejad in the first round of the presidential election held on June 17. The election was won by Ahmadinejad, who received a landslide victory in the runoff on June 24.

Esmaeil Gerami Moghaddam, the spokesman of the National Confidence Party, had previously announced that the party would receive official approval before the Khatami administration’s term office ended.

Karrubi also received a license to publish a newspaper with the same name."
