The chips are down and the stakes are high: That’s because Iran’s presidential campaign is about to begin with three main groups vying for the top job in the June vote. Many Principlist, Reformist and independent hopefuls say they have what it takes to replace incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but their failure to pick front-runners could split up the vote. Reformist hopeful Mohammad Reza Aref says despite media speculations, reformists have entered the race under the banner of coalition of four. He told Press TV the group will pick its front-runner after the Guardian Council publishes a final list of qualified candidates.
