INU - Following a statement by Tehran MP Mahmoud Sadeghi, saying that parliamentarians won as a result of the Guardian Council and “not the votes of the people,” arguments arose in the Iranian parliament.
All candidates for the presidential election must be approved by the Guardian Council, who can disqualify candidates. “By disqualifying merited candidates, the Guardian Council has not allowed figures brave enough to fight corruption to have a seat in the parliament,” he said, adding, that the parliament was “the essence of the Guardian Council’s virtues” and not that of the nation.
