Elections for president of Iran will take place exactly five months from now, on June 14th.
The new president will replace Ahmadinejad who has served the maximum two terms in office.
A series of messages have been sent out to all candidates. The messages are saying: Do not criticize the system.
The 2009 elections saw a revolution that almost toppled the Islamic regime. Most of the leaders of that revolution are still under house arrest. Many of the followers and much of the infrastructure has since been dismantled.
This time around the candidates will be vetted. The real victor will be a party player.
So far the candidates are Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Velayati, a prominent lawmaker named Gholam Ali Haddad Adel, Speaker of the Parliament Ali Larijani, Tehran Mayor Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf and ex-Revolutionary Guard commander Mohsen Rezaei.
My money right now is on Larijani - but things can always change.
