IRAN-VOTE-ECONOMY

An Iranian woman walks in a poor neighbourhood in the town of Ghaleh Hassan Khan on the southwestern outskirts of Tehran on March 11, 2008. High inflation, unemployment, slack monetary policy and a lack of foreign investment: Iran is suffering from a litany of economic problems ahead of legislative elections on March 14. But despite windfall revenues from high oil prices, this has yet to be felt by millions of low and middle-earners who are finding their real incomes dwindling further due to inflation that has reached 17.8 percent.
