Chapter IX of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran sets forth the qualifications for presidential candidates.
The procedures for presidential election and all other elections in Iran are outlined by the Supreme Leader.
The President of Iran is elected for a four-year term by direct vote and not permitted to run for a third term or serve for more than 8 years in the office.
These include signing treaties and other agreements with foreign countries and international organizations, with Supreme Leader's approval; administering national planning, budget, and state employment affairs, as decreed by the Supreme Leader.Candidates for the presidency must be approved by the Council of Guardians, a twelve-member body consisting of six clerics (selected by Iran's Supreme Leader) and six lawyers (proposed by the Supreme Leader-appointed head of Iran's judicial system, and voted in by the Parliament).Within these guidelines the Council vetoes candidates who are deemed unacceptable.The council rejects most of the candidates stating that they are not "a well-known political figure", a requirement by the current law.The President must be elected with a simple majority of the popular vote.
