Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has denounced the heated rhetoric of the country’s presidential election campaign, calling it “unworthy”, less than two days before Iranians go to the polls.

With the withdrawal of other candidates, Friday’s election has turned into what is seen as an unexpectedly tight race between incumbent President Hassan Rouhani of the Reformist bloc, and Ebrahim Raisi, a Principlist cleric and jurist.

“In the election debates, some remarks were made that were unworthy of the Iranian nation. But the [wide] participation of the people will erase all of that,” Khamenei told an audience on Wednesday, according to his website.
