TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he would leave the scene of politics after he steps down as Iran's president next year.
Ahmadinejad is nearing the end of his second term in office and can't run in Iran's June 2013 elections because of term limits.
Ahmadinejad was quoted Saturday as saying in an interview with Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung that he plans to return to academia.
He said that - though he might engage in political activity at a university - "I will not found any political party or group."
Asked whether, like Russia's Vladimir Putin, he envisions returning to the presidency at a later date, he replied, "No, eight years are enough."
