Iranian president has warned local officials to stay neutral in the upcoming elections of parliament and Assembly of Experts which is scheduled for February 2016.
Rouhani said that the government will not support any political group in the elections and will only implement the law.
It doesn’t mean that other powerful bodies have right to intervene in the elections, he underlined.
Rouhani warned that Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps(IRGC), army as well as representatives of the Supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and governors should avoid moves which may create doubts about their neutral stances towards the candidates.
The Iranian president made the remarks during a meeting with the governors in Tehran on May 30, the State IRINN TV reported.
