Earlier this week the Iranian hardliner regime announced that former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would not be allowed to run in the upcoming presidential election.
The BBC reported:
Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been barred from standing in next month’s election by a top clerical body which vets candidates, state media report.
Mr Ahmadinejad, a vocal critic of the West, served two terms as president between 2005 and 2013.
President Hassan Rouhani and leading hardliner Ebrahim Raisi have both been approved by the Guardian Council.
A final list of candidates for the 19 May poll will be announced on 27 April.
Ahmadinejad did not take the news well at all — So the regime surrounded his home and refuse to let him travel.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei sent Iranian Guards out to surround Ahmadinejad’s house to stop his trouble making during the election.
The Iranian police completely surrounded Mahmoud’s house!
It was caught on camera and posted on YouTube.
