Rouhani's hardliner competitors, Tehran's mayor, Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, and Ebrahim Raisi, chairman of Astan Quds Razavi, one of the Muslim world's wealthiest charities, have concentrated their campaign on the economic problems, which Iranians have continued to face since the deal.
"Repeat the vote for dear Rouhani, to boost hope for future", he said on Sunday, referring to Friday's presidential election.
"The move comes with a view to preserving the revolution's front and its values", he added.
Also in Iran, the country's former reformist president Mohammad Khatami has called on voters to re-elect President Hassan Rouhani in the May 19 presidential elections.
The immediate result of the rising tension now between the United States and Iran is that it undermines Iranian moderates, including Rouhani's government, which put all their political capital in the deal in the lead up to this month's election.
Khatami, in a video posted online, urged voters to cast their ballot for Rouhani to ensure the "implementation of social and economic justice".
"I will engage myself in lifting all the non-nuclear sanctions during the coming four years and bring back the grandeur of Iran and the Iranian people", he said.
This was stated by a senior researcher with the Center for Middle East Studies of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir Sazhin at a recent roundtable dubbed "Iran's power landscape ahead of the presidential election", TASS reported.
Unofficial polls still show Mr Rouhani, a moderate cleric who has sought to improve civil liberties and rebuild ties with the West, as the front-runner. It is likely others will drop out to solidify support for other candidates, especially as one of them is serving as vice president in Rouhani's government. The signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, or Iran nuclear deal), and the sanctions relief that came with it, was a fundamental part of his platform. Iran's hard-line conservatives are widely known as "principlists". "I think that the new French President who was previously the minister of economy will continue this path for expansion of constructive relations with Iran".
Khoshcheshm said that Rouhani was expected to have "a hard job" in the upcoming election.
THOMAS ERDBRINK: Thanks for having me. "It's going to be tricky for Rouhani to position himself in the center to gain the votes that were going to go to Qalibaf". The main social networks used by the Iranian people are Twitter, Instagram, and Telegram as they are harder for the Regime to control.
"People have seen the benefits of the (nuclear deal) because there's stability".
To win, the candidate must score more than 50 percent of the vote. Qalibaf's dropping out may serve to get him more votes in his challenge to Rouhani.
Speaking at a television talk show on Saturday night, Qalibaf, the incumbent mayor of Tehran, said the country is now beset with unemployment, economic recession, and high costs.
