There are no obstacles for women to register as candidates for presidential election in Iran, said the Guardian Council Spokesman, said Abbasali Kadkhodaei, Trend reports citing Mehr News Agency.

"There are some cultural discussions about this topic in the country and it's not an issue that requires the law to solve it," said Kadkhodaei.

"The Guardian Council currently can only provide suggestions in terms of election's rules," he said.

"The council provides its advising to the members of the parliament and it does not mean that we are providing a specific plan," he said.
