Iranians on June 14 will cast ballots to pick a successor to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is barred by the constitution from seeking a third consecutive term. Candidates had until May 11 to register for the race, with 686 signing up.
Iranians go to the polls to elect a new president in June. It’s the first vote since 2009 when allegations of fraud erupted into street protests. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is barred from seeking a third consecutive term.
Iran’s government said it will continue providing U.S. dollars at a preferential rate to exporters of essential goods, contradicting earlier comments by ministry officials and parliament members who said the program had been revised.
