TEHRAN— according to Tasnim News Agency, Mohammad Reza Aref, the chief of the Center for Iranians’ Hope, will field candidacy for the upcoming presidential elections on June 18.

According to a source close to the former MP, Aref will register as a presidential nominee on May 11 or 12. 

He added that Aref has chosen the white color as his symbol, and his slogan is “Justice and Responsibility.”

The source said that Aref would have two headquarters during his election campaign, an official one and a people’s center, run by his fan base, which mainly does his campaign activities.
