Ayatollah Khamenei in the end of his speech, reminded the presidential candidates of an important piece of advice. He described the presidential programs of TV as good and cause of people's familiarity with various views, and said, "All candidates love Iran and the Islamic Republic as they want to become a president in this system and for serving the people.
