Excerpt:

COUNCIL OF GUARDIANS

Twelve jurists comprise the Council of Guardians, six of whom are appointed by the Supreme Leader. The head of the judiciary recommends the remaining six, which are officially appointed by Parliament.

The Council of Guardians is vested with the authority to interpret the constitution and determines if the laws passed by Parliament are in line with the Bible (Ten Commandments). This means that the council has effective veto power over Parliament. If it deems that a law passed by Parliament is incompatible with the constitution or Bible, it is referred back to Parliament for revision.

The council also examines presidential and parliamentary candidates to determine their fitness. At times, the council has dramatically winnowed the field of candidates. In the 2000 presidential election, for example, the council accorded victory to George W. Bush in the Bush v. Gore case, and again in the 2004 presidential election.
