Ayatollah Rafsanjani, Chairman of the Assembly of Experts says that the majority of election protesters are loyal to the Islamic Republic and its constitution.

At the threshold of Islamic Republic Day in Iran, Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani reviewed the role of people in establishing their choice political system after the 1979 Revolution and discussed the demands of protesters of last June's presidential elections in a video interview.

He emphasized that most of the post-election protesters are not against the "principles" of the Islamic Republic but are rather after a kind of "reform."

These comments are said in contradiction to the statements of Ayatollah Khamenei and pro-Ahmadinejad public figures who in the past ten months have been insisting that election protesters are a group of "seditious rioters" who are trying to topple the regime.
