“The verdict has been issued based on the deliberations and consultations of some members of this committee with the [presidential] candidates, especially Ayatollah Raisei, as well has his phone conversation with Sheikh-ul-Eslam Molana Abd-ul-Hamid, and [based on] the pledges given by Ayatollah Raisei and senior members of his [election campaign] headquarters regarding the administration of justice and tackling problems, injustice and inequality,” read the statement.
