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

Almost all newspapers today covered the stump speeches delivered by the two main presidential candidates Ebrahim Raisi and Hassan Rouhani.

Reformist and pro-government papers hailed the warm welcome Rouhani received from people of Zanjan and Khuzestan provinces in his Tuesday speeches, and conservative media were highly excited about the huge gathering of Raisi fans in Tehran.
