A ray of hope for Iran's opposition...After a move to let more candidates stand in upcoming elections... was approved on Saturday.A committee known as the Guardian Council reversed their disqualification of fifteen hundred applicants...After previously-rejected candidates - many from the Reformist party - presented new evidence of their credentials.SOTMohammad Reza Tabesh, Reformist MP"All parties that operate under the Iranian constitution should be able to participate in elections.
