The coalition of reformists has culled a list of 220 candidates to campaign for, but some of them are independents who are running against the conservatives in the electoral districts where the Guardians Council has disqualified all reformist candidacy applicants, according to Tehran MP Ali-Akbar Mohtashami, who heads the campaign headquarters of the new coalition. A majority of the 5,500 candidates running for 290 Majles seats are independents who are aligned with the conservative faction. The reformist faction needs to be purged of the members whose names appear in the election rolls of both the reformist and conservative factions, MP Jalal Jalalizadeh, member of the general committee of the pro-reform party Participation Front said, referring to Majles speaker Mehdi Karrubi and Tehran MP Majid Ansari, both of the society of reformist clerics. The main competition is between the new conservative coalition Abadgaran and the reformist faction, head of the Majles minority faction Gholamali Haddad-Adel, a prominent member of the Abadgaran coalition, said. The reformist MPs, who have been banned from reelection, fear a new wave of mass arrests and trials against those who criticized the regime during the MPs&apos; sit-in protest against the Guardians Council&apos;s bans. The rights of some have been trampled on, Majles speaker Mehdi Karrubi said in a press conference held four days before the elections.

(Parviz Farhang) • The conservatives can save billions of rials in campaign funds, if they just appoint the Majles MPs from among their ranks, because the elections in which nearly 3,000 candidacy applicants have been disqualified from running cannot really be called elections, columnist Ahmad Zeydabadi writes in the reformist daily <i>Yaas-e Now</i>. The reformists have no popular support, and the support they received from the European Parliament proves that the Guardians Council was right to ban them from the elections, Mashhad candidate and former MP Hamid-Reza Taraqi said in an interview with conservative daily <i>Entekhab</i>.

(Amir Armin) • Iran will turn into a great prison after the conservatives take over the Majles, Tehran-based film director Bahman Farmanara told Italian daily <i>L&apos;Esspresso</i>.

(Ahmad Ra&apos;fat, Rome) • The student activists say that President Khatami stands by the conservatives, as the Guardians Council disqualified the reformists from running in the elections, the <i>Irish Times</i> writes. The reformist MPs boycotted the bogus elections, writes the <i>Times</i> of London. If the conservatives manage to increase voter turnout, then the pressure will mount on the reformists, secretary of the Participation Front party Mohammad-Reza Khatami said, according to the <i>Financial Times</i>.
