A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on May 3

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

A couple of weeks before Iran’s presidential election, almost all Iranian newspapers are covering the remarks made by the six candidates in their presidential campaigns.

Reformist and pro-government media criticize the promises made by conservative candidates, and the right-wing papers highlight the incumbent administration’s weak performance in different fields.

A top story today was the remarks made by Foreign Minister Mohammaad Javad Zarif in support of Rouhani’s government and what the cabinet has done in the past four years.

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