Karroubi officially register as presidential candidate

TEHRAN, May 9 (MNA) – Mahdi Karroubi visited the Interior Ministry on Saturday and officially registered as presidential candidate.

The cleric presidential contender was accompanied by leading reformist figures such as Gholam-Hossein Karbaschi, Mohammad Ali Najafi - two heavyweight members of the Construction party – and Mohammad Ali Abtahi,  a former aide to Mohammad Khatami.

 

Saturday is the last day of registration. The other reformist hopeful Mir Hossein Mousavi will also register today.

 

Najafi and Abtahi joined Karroubi after Khatami withdrew candidacy in favor of Mousavi.
