Tehran's Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, who is also a presidential candidate, said that he can return calm and stability to the people's minds, Entekhab reported.

Speaking in the northern town of Rasht, in the agricultural province of Gilan, Qalibaf, member of the Coalition of Three, said that he will be able to restore stability to the country within two years.

He said people should vote for the new president based on his accomplishments rather than his plans and programs.

Qalibaf said mismanagement is the only reason for the agricultural problems in the country, adding that administration's wrong policies have led to high unemployment amongst the young.

Iran's presidential election will be held on June 14.

The voters will select the successor of the current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is not able to participate in the elections for the third term according to the country's constitutional laws.

The Guardian Council has extended the deadline for announcing final candidates for Iran's presidential race.

According to Guardian Council Spokesman Abbas Ali Kad-Khodaei, the body will have until the 21st of May to announce the names of the approved candidates.

The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term in a national election and the Guardian Council vets the candidates for qualifications.
