Five jurists nominated for Guardian Council membership

TEHRAN, July 14 (MNA) – In a letter to the Majlis speaker, Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani nominated five jurists on Wednesday, three of whom will be elected by the parliament as the members of the Guardian Council.

The Guardian Council is composed of six Islamic jurists who are directly appointed by the Supreme leader. It also consists of six lawyers who are elected by the parliament from among those nominated by Judiciary chief.

Due to the fact that the term of office for three members of the Guardian Council will draw to an end on July 16, hereby the names of Mohammad Salimi, head of the branch 31 of the Supreme Court; Ahmad Beigi Habib-Abadi, advisor to the Judiciary chief; Mohammad Reza Alizadeh, the current member of the Guardian Council; Mohammad Hadi Sadeqi, a faculty member of Shiraz University; and Siyamak Rahpeik, head of the Judicial Faculty in Tehran, are submitted to the parliament to choose three from among them, the letter reads.

The Guardian Council is in charge of vetting election candidates for presidency, Parliament and the Assembly of Experts. Ensuring the compatibility of the legislation passed by Parliament with the criteria of Islam and the Constitution is among other duties of the council.
