TEHRAN (IP)— Iran's Guardian Council of the Constitution (GCC) has officially validated the final results of the country's 14th presidential election and notified the Interior Ministry, according to spokesman Hadi Tahan Nazif.

Iran Press/Iran news: Tahan Nazif announced that the Guardian Council, which is responsible for overseeing the electoral process, has confirmed the accuracy and legitimacy of the election results. He stated that the council had provided an opportunity for candidates or voters to file complaints, but no such complaints were submitted.

The spokesman noted that preparations are now underway for the runoff election, which will take place on July 5. The two candidates who received the most votes in the first round, Masoud Pezeshkian and Saeed Jalili, will face off in the runoff.

The validation of the election results by GCC is a crucial step in the democratic process, ensuring the integrity and transparency of the electoral outcome.

The election was called following the martyrdom of former President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash.

The runoff election between Pezeshkian and Jalili will provide Iranian voters with a choice between two distinct political visions for the country's future.
