LONDON, Jan 1 (IranMania) - Iran's Guardian Council (GC) spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham said on Saturday that the GC has agreed with the coming presidential elections to be held on June 17, 2005.
Making the remarks in his weekly press briefing, he said the council has also agreed with simultaneous holding of parliamentary bi-elections on the same date, according to IRNA.
Referring to the recent demise of the representative of Ilam constituency in parliament, the spokesman said people in Ilam too will go to ballot boxes to select their new representative.
According to him, Tehran constituency will choose its 30th representative on June 17 as well. In answer to a question on confirming or rejecting the qualifications of certain probable nominees in the coming presidential elections, he noted that since nobody has yet registered for the elections, the issue is completely out of the point.

New York, NY (30 Dec 04) The Fertility Research Foundation (FRF) announced today that its Executive Director, Masood Khatamee, MD, FACOG, has been chosen as a 2004 Ronald Reagan Republican Gold Medal Award winner. The announcement was made earlier in the month by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (R-NY) and the NRCC from Washington, DC.
Dr. Khatamee was selected based on unyielding support of the Republican Party, outstanding leadership in business and for displaying a commitment to President Ronald Reagans vision for an entrepreneurial America.
