We checked the Guardian Council's website (http://www.shora-gc.ir/Portal/Home/), it is who approves or disapproves parliamentary or presidential elections candidates. It has a section for elections on the website, but only containing election laws and another elections news section, mainly about the council's activities.
Currently, Electoral Commission announces the results after the Ministry of Interior confirmation. We checked the site for the Ministry of Interior, the page for the presidential elections results (http://result-p.moi.ir/Portal/Home/default.aspx) seems to be down. Wikipedia article about 2013 elections in Iran cited the Ministry of Interior as their source, but didn't specify a link. We couldn't find any web presence for the Electoral Commission.
This link from MOI should also provide the elections results data (http://www.moi.ir/portal/home/default.aspx?categoryid=c2cf29ae-2e8e-4319-a926-1e311d44c6d1), but links there are not working, and gave us errors when we tried to access the presidential or parliament elections results. Only one of the few links that worked for one past election, gave us data in the following format (http://www.moi.ir/portal/Home/Default.aspx?CategoryID=a49af0c2-962d-4896-9dab-994263db42f4 - http://www.moi.ir/portal/File/ShowFile.aspx?ID=7201aaf9-13af-48a0-902b-513b34e9134d), which doesn't seem to meet the standards
The submission is correct.
