Ex-nuke negotiator calls Ahmadinejad a 'demagogue'

June 5, 2009 19:17

Iran's former nuclear negotiator accused Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of touting the country's nuclear successes to make himself look like a hero ahead of next week's election. Hasan Rowhani also called the president a "demagogue" whose hard-line policies have harmed Iran's dignity and credibility abroad. The criticism was part of verbal dueling ahead of the June 12 presidential election. Ahmadinejad faces a tough challenge from three other contenders - including two reformists - for the country's top job.
