TEHERAN, Iran — Iran's supreme leader said the opposition has lost its credibility and the right to participate in politics by not accepting the June presidential elections, state TV reported Thursday.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said those that do not accept the vote of the majority of the people and are trying to turn the elections into a weakness for the country should be disqualified from participating in the Islamic system.

"They have already lost their credibility," he said, without mentioning any names.

Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters, said the postelection turmoil was because certain people wanted to deny the will of the majority.
