A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on May 11

Iran Front Page_ IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All Iranian newspapers today highlighted the warning issued by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei against those who disrupt the security of Iran’s upcoming elections.

Another top story was the third and final presidential debate, which is going to be live aired on Friday afternoon. Speculations about the approaches presidential candidates will adopt, and the questions they should answer were particularly highlighted.

A list of candidates for Tehran city council election proposed by the Reformists’ High Council of Policy-Making was also widely covered by newspapers today. Many reformists are critical of the list, questioning the competence of the ones included in the list.

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