Win Griffiths, supporter of terrorist MKO, will step down from parliament
Over 13 percent of Britain's 659 MPs, including several former cabinet ministers, have so far announced their intentions to step down from parliament at the forthcoming general elections.
According to details obtained by IRNA, the list of 86 MPs includes former Conservative Minister Sir Teddy Taylor, who has promoted a positive view of expanding relations with Iran. He has been an MP for over 40 years.
Among those retiring in contrast is Labour MP Win Griffiths, who has acted as an apologist for the Iraq-based Mujahideen-e Khalq terrorist group and lead a campaign for the anti-Iran group to be de-proscribed from Britain's list of terrorist groups.
The list of 86 retiring MPs, which is expected to be added to before the general election on May 5, includes 58 from the ruling Labour Party, 16 from the opposition Conservatives, eight Liberal Democrats and four in total from Northern Ireland parties.
