According to The Iran Project, a meeting of the heads of Iran’s branches of power was held on Wednesday evening to coordinate plans for the upcoming presidential election, slated for June 28.

The meeting was attended by the acting president, the Parliament speaker, the Judiciary chief, the vice president for legal affairs, the minister of intelligence, the minister of information and communications technology, and the president of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.

Iranian Intelligence Minister Esmaeil Khatib gave a report on the presidential contest, saying his ministry will constantly and impartially monitor the behavior of the candidates and their proponents, give the necessary warnings to people against destructive or defamatory conducts, and report the wrongdoings to the judicial authorities, if necessary.

He also noted that the Intelligence Ministry is trying to foil hostile attempts by foreign-based elements at disrupting the Iranian community’s psychological calm, so that people would be able to vote in a healthy atmosphere without the enemy’s interference.

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his entourage crashed in northwestern mountainous forests on May 19, killing the president, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, and six others.

According to the Constitution, First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber has taken the helm as the acting president at the discretion of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

The Elections Headquarters of Iran has set a timetable for the formation of electoral executive delegations, the registration of applicants, and the election campaign processes.

The election campaign period is set for June 12-26, while the nationwide presidential election will be held on Friday, June 28.

In a live televised speech on June 3, Ayatollah Khamenei described the upcoming presidential elections in Iran as a momentous undertaking and a highly rewarding phenomenon. “If these elections are conducted properly and with great splendor and magnificence, it will be a significant achievement for the Iranian nation and it will resonate powerfully throughout the world,” he said.

The Leader also said, "The Iranian nation requires an active, hardworking, knowledgeable, and principled president who believes in the principles of the Revolution in order to safeguard their interests and solidify their strategic depth in complex international equations.”
