The two leading candidates from the reformist camp are Mohammad Ali Najafi and Mohammad Reza Aref. Najafi is a Massachusetts Institute of Technology-trained mathematician and former minister of education in the Rafsanjani government and minister of planning in the Khatami government.

Aref, a Stanford-trained scientist, was first vice president under Khatami. It is likely that Rafsanjani and Khatami will together pick one of these two candidates to represent the reformist movement and give him their total political and financial backing.
