A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on April 29

Iran Front Page- IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 25 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Many Iran newspapers covered the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with a group of Quran reciters and organizers of an international Quran contest.

The top story, however, was the first live presidential debate between the six candidates on social issues.

The focus of reformist and pro-government newspapers was on Es’haq Jahangiri’s attacks and counterattacks against Tehran Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf. Conservative media also referred to Hassan Rouhani’s weak performance in the debate, and stressed that he has been the main loser.

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