Iran's Ahmadinejad launches website ahead of vote

Iran's former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a website ahead of parliamentary elections next year in a sign he may be eyeing a political comeback despite a recent corruption scandal.



Tehran: Iran's former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a website ahead of parliamentary elections next year in a sign he may be eyeing a political comeback despite a recent corruption scandal.

The website, ahmadinejad.Ir, was launched Sunday with a big smiling photo of Ahmadinejad and the slogan: "We will come soon."

Ahmadinejad effectively disappeared from Iran's political landscape after his second term ended in 2013. The hard-line leader's eight-year rule was marked by hostility towards the West and inflammatory rhetoric calling for the destruction of Israel and casting doubt on the Holocaust.

His reputation even among hard-liners took a hit earlier this month after his former senior vice president was sentenced to five years in jail and ordered to pay a USD 300,000 fine for corruption.
