A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 22 them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The ongoing war of words between the Iranian administration and Judiciary, particularly the comments made by President Hassan Rouhani and Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani against each other, was a top story today.

The speculations about Rouhani’s possible disqualification from running for upcoming presidential votes and the reformist camp’s preparations for introduction of an alternative also received great coverage.

Another top story today was the letter written by 37 American scientists to President-elect Donald Trump to urge him not to scrap Iran nuclear deal.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines:
