TEHRAN, July 5 (MNA) -- Parliamentary by-elections will be held simultaneously with presidential elections next year, Guardian Council(GC) spokesman Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaei told reporters at his weekly press briefing on Saturday.

In response to a question on the number of election monitors recruited by the GC, he said “The Guardian Council does not recruit monitors, but monitors are selected from among people who are inclined to cooperate with us.”   

 

Asked about an ambiguity in utilizing the term “apostate” in some articles of the psychological security plan under discussion in parliament, he said, “Such plans depend on the issues recognized by the representatives. As the plan is not yet delivered to the Guardian Council, I will not remark on the subject.”

 

Elsewhere, the spokesman stated he will leave the GC soon.

 

“I have been thinking of leaving here and engaging in some academic affaires. My new position is also in keeping with this objective,” he went on to say.

 

Kadkhodaei has been appointed as the legal adviser to Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani.
