Iran: politics

Global Voices Online reports that Tourjan, an Iranian religious student and blogger writes (fa) in his blog about the weekly Sharvand Emrouz, which is according to some newssites, banned by the government.
The magazines lawyer says that the pretext is used that the magazine is licensed as a cultural and social publication so it cannot have political material.
Since the magazine started in March 2007, Shahrvand Emrouz has covered current Iranian and international politics and cultural issues in its 70 editions.

Supporters of ex-president Khatami urged him to to run in the next presidential race. MehrNewsAgency said Thursday that a group reformists and also young people gathered who strongly called for his comeback.
Khatami earlier had announced that he personally is not interested in his return in politics.
However he added that he would decide to do whatever serves the best interests of the country.
