Iran reformists, moderates unite ahead of vote

TEHRAN-Iranian reformists seeking greater democratic change and moderates supporting President Hassan Rouhani’s outreach to the West have formed an alliance to increase their chances ahead of Feb. 26 parliamentary elections.

Prominent reformist Mohammad Reza Aref, a former vice president and a candidate in the upcoming vote, says his supporters and Rouhani allies have agreed to release a joint list of candidates in order to more effectively challenge hard-liners and conservatives, who remain split.
