Ahmadinejad’s Budget Hikes Funding For Hard-Line Think Tanks

TEHRAN — Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad has proposed increasing funds for hard-line think tanks by 143 percent in his draft government budget, RFE/RL’s Radio Farda reports.

If passed by the parliament, hundreds of millions dollars more than the previous year would be directed to ideological institutes — mostly run by close associates of Ahmadinejad — that are trying to prepare the country for the imminent return of the “Hidden Imam.”
