Iran's former president Mohammad Khatami, who is under a media ban for supporting reformist candidates in the 2009 presidential election, Tuesday urged fewer restrictions and a more open atmosphere.The comments, in a statement published on Khatami's website, follow an influential strategic role he played in Feb. 26 elections in which reformists won many parliamentary seats.The restrictions were imposed after Khatami backed Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, the defeated reformist candidates in a disputed presidential vote in 2009 which saw Mahmoud Ahmadinejad re-elected.
