The article presents information on the presidential election that will be conducted in Iran. June 17, 2005 has been announced as the date for Iran's presidential election, which the conservatives are tipped to win. Ali Larijani, former head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, currently looks like the most likely winner, although Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani would pose a serious threat if he decided to stand. On January 1, Iran's legislative watchdog, the Guardian Council, announced that Iran's presidential election would be held on June 17.
