TEHRAN, April 21 (IranMania) - Iran's Interior Ministry has announced that the Guardian Council has approved the eligibility of six people to run for president, without including former president Ahmadinejad.
The Guardian Council approved candidates Hassan Rowhani, Ibrahim Razi, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, Ishaq Jahangiri, Mostafa Hashemi Taba and Mostafa Mir Salim for the upcoming presidential elections.
In turn, Ahmadinejad threatened to "reveal the hidden" if the Guardian Council refused to qualify for the presidential race scheduled for May 19 next.
"He has documents for the presidential elections in 2009 and the regime has rigged the election results in favor of his reformist rival, Mir Hossein Mousavi," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to a crowd of his supporters in Tehran.
"The documents that he has confirmed that the regime has forged about 16 million votes in favor of him," noting that "if there was no fraud election results for the presidential election went to the second round with opponents of the reformer Mir Hossein Mousavi."
In a related context, the Council held the maintenance of the constitution headed by Ahmed Jannati, on Thursday, a meeting with a group of Shiite authorities in the city of Qom south of Tehran, including the reference to Nasser Makarem Shirazi to study the threats launched by Ahmadinejad.
"Advisor to the Iranian Supreme Leader, General Wahid Haqqanian, stressed during the meeting between the religious authorities and the Guardian Council that we are ready to put Ahmadinejad's head under water if he continues to launch his threats," the newspaper quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
"If Ahmadinejad makes the call to protest, we are ready to arrest him and put him in Evin prison. We will repeat the scenario that happened with Saeed Imami, who was deputy intelligence minister when he uncovered the assassination of intellectuals in Tehran in 1988," Khamenei said. Finished
