A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on April 22

Iran Front Page- IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

After five days of vetting, the Guardian Council selected six presidential candidates from among over 1,600 applicants. All Iran newspapers today covered the beginning of competition between these six presidential hopefuls.

The live broadcast of presidential debates also received great coverage today. A headquarters composed of officials holding the upcoming presidential election has decided not to air the presidential debates live, but the decision has been protested by President Rouhani, Ebrahim Raisi, and a number of other candidates.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s reaction to the US officials’ anti-Iran accusations was also a top story today.

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