Second Day of Registrations

The second day of registrations took place with more theatre as supporters of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad caused disruptions at Election Headquarters, while supporters of Minister for Communications Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi gathered in front of the building, calling on their candidate to register in defiance of the Guardian Council. Among those registering today were former Ahmadinejad era cabinet members Mohammad Abbasi, Mohammad Jahromi, Sadegh Khalilian and Mohammad-Sharif Malekzadeh. Others included conservative deputy speaker of the Majles, Amin-Hossein Ghazizadeh Hashemi (who was accompanied by his daughter), moderate leader Qodrat-Ali Heshmatian, diplomat Mohammad-Hassan Qadiri Abyaneh, and eccentrically dressed hair salon owner Behrouz Vosoughi who has also registered in the last few elections.
