"An adviser to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's former hard-line president, says the politician won't seek re-election [sic] in next year's presidential vote after apparently being discouraged by the country's supreme leader. Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Ali Akbar Javanfekr on Tuesday as saying Ahmadinejad sent a letter to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei saying he wouldn't seek the presidency again."
