Economy high on Iran election agenda

With poll less than a week away, voters hope fixing the economy would be the new president's top priority.

    It is less than a week until the Iranian presidential election, with the economy on every candidate's agenda.

    Iran’s financial problems are largely a result of international sanctions as well as economic mismanagement.

    Voters, both young and old, want the new president to make fixing the economy his priority.
