eader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says enemies of Iran have failed to isolate the Islamic Republic despite their strenuous efforts to do so.
“In the political field, they sought, on the one hand, to isolate the Iranian nation, and on the other hand, to make the Iranian nation perplexed and doubtful [about pursuing its goals], and undermine their determination. But in practice, exactly the contrary has occurred,” stated Ayatollah Khamenei.
The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term through a national election. The country’s Guardian Council vets the candidates for qualifications.
