Tajzadeh daughter

Mostafa Tajzadeh’s candidacy for President has caused a stir in political circles. The reformist activist announced he would run in the June elections on Sunday, April 25, and two days later, in a five-hour Clubhouse chatroom session, he took questions about why he was running and responded to criticisms. “I am sticking to the ballot box because there is no alternative, neither for me nor for the world,” he said. An old photograph of Mostafa Tajzadeh voting next to Ayatollah Khomeini, and his wedding invitation card bearing a picture of the founder of the Islamic Republic, are two of his more iconic documented moments in the 1980s.
