Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's remarks came ahead of May 19 polls, in which the president is seeking re-election.Khamenei has the final say over policy in Iran and has repeatedly distanced himself from Rouhani in recent weeks.Separately, Iran's state TV Saturday censored a documentary released by Rouhani's campaign.A report by the semiofficial ILNA did not elaborate but a Rouhani campaign official confirmed to the Associated Press that state TV had cut parts of "President Rouhani".
