Iran's moderate former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani on Saturday registered his candidacy to stand for office again, an AFP correspondent witnessed.

Rafsanjani filed his papers at the interior ministry.

He has been isolated since the 2009 presidential election, which saw massive street protests against the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
