Iran presidential elections to be held in June
Guardian Council (GC) spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham said Saturday that the GC has agreed the coming presidential elections to be held on June 17, 2005. Making his comments during his weekly press briefing, he said the council has also agreed with simultaneous holding of parliamentary bi-elections on the same date.
According to him, Tehran constituency will choose its 30th representative on June 17 as well. In answer to a question on confirming or rejecting the qualifications of certain probable nominees in the coming presidential elections, he noted, according to IRNA, that since nobody has yet registered for the elections, the issue is completely out of the point.
