Conservative politicians Parviz Fattah, Mehrdad Bazrpash, and Alireza Zakani are preparing their presidential campaigns and will most likely run for the office in the June 28 snap elections, the IRGC-affiliated Tasnim reported, citing sources.

Fattah, a former IRGC officer, is currently the head of the multi-billion-dollar economic empire controlled by Iran's Supreme Leader.

Bazrpash is the current transport minister who was aboard one of the other helicopters flying with Raisi's doomed chopper.

Zakani is also the current mayor of Tehran who dropped out of 2021 presidential race and backed Raisi.
