This rule is the basis of our operation and the people who registered provided the account number as the account of election expenses. One of the main components in the examination of qualifications is the cleanliness and economic health of people, and this issue is very important for the Guardian Council. Components such as adherence to financial obligations and not being among tax evaders are among the issues of concern of the Guardian Council.

In response to rahnam’s reporter’s question about the reason for the non-disclosure of candidates for the parliamentary elections by the executive boards, Tahan Nazif said: In this context, the relevant legal authorities should be questioned because these boards are not related to the Guardian Council.

Also, this law was approved in line with the implementation of general election policies after about 7 years, and like any other law, it should be the basis of action; About this amendment, I must say that it brought advantages that it had taken steps towards the rights of volunteers and people; Including that in the pre-registration process, people who may be faced with document defects, will not be allowed to enter the next process without incurring a cost to them.

Tahan Nazeef pointed out: the expansion of the times for checking the qualifications is one of the other advantages of the new law; There have been three stages of executive boards, provincial and guardian councils in the past periods as well, and it has only developed over time; These changes were necessary but not sufficient because they do not solve all problems and damages.

Also, in response to a question about statements made by people such as Rahimpour Azghadi about Hassan Rouhani’s disqualification in the elections of the Assembly of Leadership Experts, he said: for the time being, the registration for the elections of the Assembly of Leadership Experts has been done, and the qualification of the candidates for this election is also under the jurisdiction of the jurists of this council. and we have not yet entered into the examination of the qualifications of this parliament.

There is a deadline for consideration. The next stage is the provincial supervisory boards, which have 50 days to investigate the complaints of disqualified persons, and the Guardian Council has 30 days to comment on this matter. These steps are to create more efficiency and comfort for volunteers and people.

Tahan Nazeef stated that a total of 5288 people through the volunteer system expressed their objection to the executive boards’ opinion to the provincial supervisory boards, and said: Of course, about 1600 of the volunteers did not register a complaint. In this regard, the provincial supervisory boards have until January 14th to express their opinion, although this opinion is not final, and finally the Guardian Council will announce the results of the qualification review.

In response to a question about the percentages calculated by some media about unqualified people, he clarified: In the context of checking qualifications, the criterion is their compliance with legal conditions. Now this number may be less in one period and more in another period. There were periods when the opinion of the executive boards was mostly in favor and in other periods the opinion of these boards was rejected. We have to wait and see to what extent the opinions of the executive boards are consistent with the opinions of the supervisory boards and the Guardian Council.

The spokesman of the Guardian Council in response to the question, does the presence of family members of election candidates abroad have an effect on their qualifications? He reminded: this issue in itself cannot cause disqualification and the law emphasizes and specifies the person, but it has not entered regarding this issue.

In the continuation of this press conference, Tahan Nazif, in response to a question about some measures taken by some government-affiliated media against some election candidates, noted: The final candidates have not yet been determined, and naturally, we have not received any complaints yet. Moreover, according to the law, public and government facilities should be equally available to all candidates.

The spokesman of the Guardian Council added: In the sixth chapter of the election law, there are some things mentioned in this matter, such as posting advertisements and publishing content against election candidates and declaring false facts. I think that Sed and Sima also announced recently that they want to take measures and provide pages to the candidates. I hope that everyone will act within the framework of the law and that all public and government resources and facilities and departments such as municipalities will be provided to all candidates in a fair manner.

In response to a question about the announcement of the speaker of the parliament regarding the submission of a report to clarify the ambiguity of the hijab and modesty bill, he said: We have not yet received the modesty and hijab bill in the second phase.

The spokesman of the Guardian Council also emphasized in response to a question about the actions of some of the disqualified members in the context of destroying the position of the Guardian Council: We are on the eve of two important elections in the country, and as always, we witnessed political contests in the elections, and it is possible that some currents also take such actions, but I think the best way is always the legal way, and the Guardian Council has also announced many times that it listens to people and political groups who have something to say; Basically, the Guardian Council is the arbiter to pursue the rights of these people. The election law has foreseen several stages in this field. Also, the atmosphere of the country is open and free, and if someone has something to say, he can raise his content away from political and media excitement.

Tahan Nazeef emphasized: According to the election law, if someone introduces false and untrue information to the Guardian Council, contrary to what he was told and informed, the Guardian Council has the right to defend himself.

He also said about the claim of the reformist media about the disqualification of the candidates of this movement by the Guardian Council: We have said many times that the Guardian Council does not have a political, party or factional view and we do not make predictions and I request the media not to prejudge in this regard.
