Ballot papers designed for presidential vote: GC

Iran’s top election supervisory body, the Guardian Council (GC), says ballot papers have been designed for the upcoming presidential election in June.

The GC spokesman, Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaei, said on Wednesday that the ballot papers are up to high standards in terms of both quality and security.

He stated that the GC has also picked a 30-member group of people as its Central Executive Board.

Kadkhodaei said Iran’s Bank Melli is printing the ballot papers.

More than 20 presidential hopefuls have so far declared their presidential bids.

Iran’s 11th presidential election will be held on June 14. Presidential hopefuls can register from May 7 to 11.

The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term in a national election and candidates must be vetted for qualifications by the GC.
