Mullah Ahmad Jannati criticized some presidential election candidates and said they are using "illegal" techniques in their campaigns.

Addressing thousands of bassijis at Tehran University Campus, Jannati accused some of the candidates to "violate laws" in order to win the election.

However, he did not name any specific candidate. Eight candidates are running for Iran's 9th presidential election to be held on June 17.

Ayatollah Jannati added," Now, that these people do not have any official post, they are ignoring law. What would they do when they get the presidential post?"
He warned that if these candidates do not stop their illegal actions, the judicial system would deal with them.

Jannati advised the next president to avoid nepotism in selecting his colleagues and choose the officials on their merits.
