It is illegal that some candidates claim in their campaigns that they will distribute money, the Majlis speaker said on Tuesday, IRIB reported.


Ali Larijani questioned the objectives to be achieved by handing out money to people, asking: “Does such distribution of money create jobs or help production (sector)?”


“If someone says the country’s energy revenues go into making factories then one can say it is the word of an honest politician,” he said.
