Iran has announced six candidates for this month’s presidential elections, while Ahmadinejad’s papers were rejected.

According to AFP, the majority of candidates whose documents have been approved for the presidential elections are conservative, while former Iranian president Mohammad Ahmadinejad was once again denied permission to participate in the elections.
The presidential elections will be held on June 28 this month after the Iran’s President Ibrahim Raisi martyred in a helicopter accident.
According to the Ministry of Interior, Iran’s Shura Nighban has made the final selection out of 80 candidates. This Shura oversees elections in Iran. Among the candidates who have been announced for the elections, only one candidate belongs to the reformist camp.
It should be noted that Ahmadinejad has been the president of Iran for two periods of four years from 2005 to 2013. Despite his unpopularity in the West, Ahmadinejad has been popular among the poor sections of Iran due to his projects.
