Iran's Ahmadinejad launches website ahead of vote

In possible preparations for political comeback, Iranian former president unveils new website accompanied by slogan 'We will come soon'.

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,, 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 $300,000 fine for corruption.
