Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the upcoming presidential election in Iran should create a political epic in the country.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks while addressing a ceremony at Imam Khomeini’s Mausoleum in southern Tehran to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the passing of the founder of the Islamic Republic.

On June 14, Iranians will cast their ballots at over 66,000 polling stations across the country, and some 285 polling stations will be set up for Iranian nationals in other countries.

Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that the principles of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, constitute the roadmap for the country’s progress.
