Nik Ahang, an Iranian cartoonist and blogger, has called the former parliament speaker, “Barack Karroubi” because he insists he is the candidate of “change”. The blogger also drew a cartoon of him. Karroubi has called [fa] for an end to the execution of minors in Iran and pledged to create more freedom in the country. He also advocates negotiation in international relations.

On Facebook we find several videos where Karroubi and his advisers answer questions about the election. In one of these films Karroubi describes the Holocaust as a reality. So far that makes him the only major candidate in the running to take a clear position on this issue.
