“Ahmadinejad and his ministers will be absent for Tehran’s Friday prayer”

Sarmayeh and other news sources have reported that Ahmadinejad is going to the city of Mashhad today and is planning to give a speech on Friday at Imam Reza’s shrine there.  The cabinet will also have a meeting in Mashhad.  “Therefore, Ahmadinejad and his cabinet will not be present for Tehran’s Friday prayers.”
According to some reformist media such as Norooz, Ahmadinejad is taking this trip mainly to avoid attending the Friday sermon led by Rafsanjani.
