Campaigning begins in crucial Iran elections

 

 
As many as 6,300 candidates, including 586 women, are campaigning for a place in the country’s 290-seat parliament.
 
Earlier this week, Iran’s Interior Ministry finalized the full list of approved candidates for the parliamentary election, due on 26 February, after the Guardian Council endorsed their qualifications.
 
According to Siyamak Rahpeyk, the spokesman for Iran’s Central Elections Supervising Committee, some 55 percent of those registered have received approval, setting a record in the history of the parliamentary elections.
 
At least 21 people will compete for each seat in parliament, said the official.
 
In the capital Tehran, over 1000 candidates are competing for just 30 seats.
 
Parliament’s members are elected every four years, and former and current members can be re-elected.
