Dr Rouhani attended the opening ceremony of the fifth term of Assembly of Experts on Tuesday and said: “Religious democracy is defined in its true sense, in choosing their leader because first of all, all members of the Assembly of Experts are elected by people, and second, they are all qualified jurists approved by the Guardian Council”.

“I hope that the Supreme Leader of the Revolution’s blessing life continues and the Assembly of Experts does not have to decide on this matter but it is very important that jurists elected by people are the decision-makers of this issue,” said the President, referring to the responsibility of the assembly in choosing the Supreme Leader.

He added: “Assembly of Experts has been very successful in its last test and on June 4, 1989 after the Imam Khomeini’s demise, it could choose a qualified leader both promptly and carefully, in a way that the world was amazed by its speed”.
