A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on May 10

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

Almost all newspapers today continued covering the remarks made by Iranian presidential candidates, particularly the three main rivals Hassan Rouhani, Ebrahim Raisi, and Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf.

Conservative papers criticized the filtering of a website launched by Qalibaf for unemployed people, and said Rouhani has blocked the website to launch his own version.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s comments about Iran’s foreign policy and the false promises made by certain candidates also received great coverage.

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