The aftermath of allegations by Former First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi that he has contributed $400,000 to the campaigns of 170 parliamentary candidates dominated the front pages of Iranian dailies Monday. The spokesman of the Guardian Council has said if those allegations are substantiated, the council will consider them in the vetting process of upcoming elections. Also on the cover of newspapers were the comments of the parliament speaker who blamed the US president for the potential failure of nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1. “Because of internal problems, President Obama cannot make a wise decision in response to the logical stance of the Iranians,” Larijani said.
