Iran’s Election Headquarters said on Wednesday that campaigns for the parliament’s run-off elections will begin from today (Thursday) and will last for one week.
Candidates running for seats in Iran’s Parliament will compete in second round of the elections slated for May 10.
A total of 90 candidates are going to run for the 45 remaining seats in the parliament. The spokesperson for Iran’s Election Headquarters, Mohsen Eslami, said on Sunday that the elections will be held in 22 constituencies across the country where the candidates had failed to receive an absolute majority (more than 50%) of votes cast during the first round which was held on March 1.
He noted that the upcoming run-off elections will be held with electronic voting machines in 22 districts across 15 provinces, including in the capital, Tehran.
The first round of the elections was held on March 1. On the same day, Iranians also voted to elect the members of the Assembly of Experts.
