Ayatollah Ali Movahedi-Kermani is Tehran's Friday Prayer Temporary Imam and the current leader of Combatant Clergy Association. He was a member of the 3rd Assembly of Experts.

He was formerly one of the deputy speakers in the Islamic Consultative Assembly.[1]


Movahedi-Kermani asserts that one must adhere to the instruction of the Chief Islamic Jurisprudent.[2] He also believes that the United States is trying to "portray the clergy and religion as failures."[3]

Movahedi reportedly won 685,974 votes of the Kerman Province for his re-election to the 4th Assembly of Experts.[4] He was ranked 2nd after Ahmad Khatami in the constituency.[5]
