Revelations of Scandalous Economic Statistics: Iran's Presidential Candidates in a Race on Exposes - Since their official endorsement, Iranian presidential candidates have engaged in a game of one-upmanship to expose the dire economic conditions of the country. One announced that Iran owed 30 million Dollars to China, another said there were three million unemployed in Iran, others proclaim unprecedented rise in the rich-poor gap, and various inflation rates, conditions that in the words of Majlis speakers differ vastly with what the Ahmadinejad's administration has been boasting. -Firoozeh Matin, Rooz 6/5/13
The Crying Game Comes To Iran's Election - Iranian politicians often cry. Yet to this point it was rare for presidential candidates to include weeping in an official campaign video.
