Tehran, YJC. A recent opinion poll shows that a number of Principalist candidates have grown in popularity as the election day approaches.

A recent opinion poll by a cultural-media organization says that Qalibaf still stands as the number one choice and Velayati has moved one step up to replace Jalili, becoming number two on the chart, Mehr News Agency reports.

The survey was carried out on May 24 in 8 major cities of the country.

More than 72 percent of the sample group, amounting to around 10 thousand people, had decided their favorite candidate while 28 percent had not made up their minds.

The results showed that Qalibaf is favored by 27 percent to rank first among the 8 candidates. The poll also shows him to have taken a big leap compared to previous surveys.

Aliakbar Velayati in turn has moved one step higher to replace Said Jalili with 12 percent of the votes, standing 1 percent higher than the rival.

Qolamali Haddad Adel, the other Development Coalition member, who experienced a not much desirable time during previous surveys has here risen to a promising number of 8 percent.

Mohsen Rezaei’s percentage is here also independent as his political stance, remaining at the same 6 percent. Things being so he ranks 5th among the 8 candidates.

Hassan Rohani with 5 percent, Mohammadreza Aref with 3 percent, and Mohammad Qarazi with 0.5 percent occupy the remaining places.
