Iran's former nuclear negotiator accused Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of touting the country's nuclear successes to make himself look like a hero ahead of next week's election. Hasan Rowhani also called the president a "demagogue" whose hard-line policies have harmed Iran's dignity and credibility abroad.
