Polling day in Iran's presidential election may be five months away but the election campaign is already in full swing.

According to tradition, next June's election should be a routine affair. Since 1982, all presidents of the Islamic Republic have been allowed to win a second and final four-year term, without much serious opposition. This time, however, things are different.
