In his Friday Prayer speech, Ayatollah Emami Kashani provided comments on current presidential campaigns and said "The President must act and plan within sensible frames.”
He stated that candidates must not interfere with major policies and added that to say that he will deal with the US in this way and that is none of the President’s privileges, because article 101 of the constitution lays the privilege on one who is fit for Leadership.
He said "The President must delineate his duties at the executive level. They must see if they are capable of such acts, if not, they may resign.”
Emami Kashani also pointed to the Islamic awakening and regional developments and said that the Salafi are neither Shiite nor Sunni, nor even Muslim, but Zionists in every sense of the word.
