(CNSNews.com) – As Iran’s continuing crackdown on opposition supporters roils the country and makes headlines around the world, the Islamic republic is seeking support for a fresh bid to join the U.N. Human Rights Council.Iran last stood for election to the world body’s top human rights institution four years ago, but fared dismally. In this year’s annual elections, scheduled for May, its chances are considered better despite Western-led concerns about its human rights record and the violent suppression of protests sparked by last summer’s disputed presidential election.In 2006, Iran was one of 18 countries vying for 13 seats earmarked for the Asian regional group in the fledgling HRC. In the vote, by the full U.N. General Assembly, it achieved the second lowest tally of the 18, with only Iraq doing worse.In May, Iran will be one of five contenders for four available Asia seats. In the secret ballot vote it is expected to be backed by many fellow Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) members – although some of the Gulf states will likely not be among them – as well as by non-Muslim allies in Africa, Asia and Latin America.Also currently in the running for the four seats are Qatar, Malaysia, the Maldives and Thailand.
