Former president calls on Iranians to support Rouhani in election


Meanwhile, the president found himself heckled and his vehicle beaten by angry miners Sunday as he visited the site of a coal mine disaster that killed at least 42 people. He's The New York Times bureau chief in Tehran.

The previous administration's strategy was supposed to insulate the United States from conflict in the Middle East - which Obama believed had nothing to do with America's national interest.

They must be present in all official positions."Indicating that he had met with many Sunni representatives in Iran during his campaign, and listened to their problems and demands, Jahangiri assured them that the current Govt seeks to fulfil their constitutional rights. If the Iranian people allow it, if the supreme leader supports and guides it, with Dr. Zarif the rest of the sanctions can be removed". In exchange for the International Atomic Energy Agency having more control over Iran's nuclear programme, Iran would keep a presence in the region, there would be a guarantee of security of the regime, and the USA would lift sanctions against it.

Referring to the nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, by its Persian acronym, BARJAM, Rouhani said, "We established a bridge between Iran and the world with BARJAM. We believe that the Palestinian resistance is ongoing and the Palestinian people will not stop fighting for the realization of their dreams and ideals", he said.

Mr Rouhani's government signed a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers that ended some sanctions in exchange for curbs to Iran's nuclear programme.

With President Rouhani's economic record under attack from both Qalibaf and Raisi, the election campaign has grown increasingly bitter and confrontational in the past week.

Rouhani's allies say his rivals oppose deeper change and exposure to worldwide competition in part because of the economic interests of the Guards, which gained control of swathes of Iran's industry during its years of isolation.

Barcelona's title quest hit by untimely defensive crisis ahead of Las Palmas
Real Madrid and Barcelona are tied on points atop the standings, with Barcelona ahead on the head-to-head tiebreaker. The pair haven't heard from the club over their futures but Barca are said to be waiting for offers to come in.

Mohammed Baqer Qalibaf, the mayor of the Iranian capital of Tehran, announced he would be dropping out of the presidential election on Monday and throwing his support behind Raisi.

In the last election four years ago, Qalibaf finished second but with just 16.5 percent of the vote. It is reasonable to assume that this deal would not have been completed (and might not have been attempted) under a more hard-line Iranian president.

According to Iranian media, more than 56.4 million voters are eligible to cast ballot in the polls.

"The Obama defenders of the [nuclear deal] are terrified that the Trump administration will end the Obama paralysis of US policy towards the Iranian regime", said one Iran expert who played a major role in push back against the nuclear deal. The Trump administration, however, will likely follow its confrontational policy towards Iran regardless of the election outcome.

It was the culmination of a series of increasingly aggressive campaign attacks by Rouhani, a 68-year-old moderate cleric, who in recent weeks has lashed out at conservatives over issues from freedom of speech to corruption and wealthy institutions that don't pay tax.

Pushing the Iranian public towards hardliners is the probable outcome of a harsher U.S. line.
