A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 1

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 26 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The final elections of the Iranian Parliament’s governing board were held on Tuesday, and MPs elected Ali Larijani as the Speaker, Masoud Pezeshkian as the 1st Vice-Speaker, and Ali Motahari as the 2nd Vice-Speaker of the Parliament.

The elections were covered by Iranian newspapers on Wednesday in different ways. While all reformist papers expressed their joy over their victory, almost all conservative media refused to even cover the development. Such newspapers as Hemayat, Resalat, and Vatan-e Emrooz didn’t cover the related news, or at most covered Larijani’s re-election as Speaker.

Kayhan, however, mentioned the names of Motahari and Pezeshkian in small font, and said that the reformists were deluded in calling the result a victory.

A press conference for Asghar Farhadi’s latest film The Salesman was also widely covered in Iranian media.
