Presidential race shows new face of Iran

Candidate Hassan Rouhani is gaining support with an online media campaign and a reformist tone.

    As Iran prepares for June 14 presidential elections, Hassan Rouhani and the other candidates are increasingly using social media to get their messages out.

    As well as using new ways to talk to the electorate, at least some of the candidates are keen to show a new, more reformist tone.
