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. It's not fair to let one party take part, while another gets pushed aside. When that happens, it means there's no competition - and that's not going to get people out to vote."Of the 12,000 who applied, around half have been approved to stand in the parliamentary elections.The Guardian Council has been accused of favouring conservative candidates...Because of its ties with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.But this MP says applicants were disqualified based on their credentials - and nothing else.SOTFatemeh Alia, Conservative MP"If someone has done something to compromise national security, like get involved in a case of corruption, or something similar to what happened in 2009, they should be disqualified on the grounds of infringement of the sovereignty of the country. And this has nothing to do with the nuclear deal or President Rouhani's policies." There's no confirmation yet of how many Reformists will be standing...A final list of candidates will be released on February 16th.But Rouhani - who has close ties to the party - is hoping they can make gains...Following the implementation of Iran's nuclear deal and removal of international sanctions.
