Iran holds the second round of parliamentary elections

Citizens in 22 electoral districts across the country to select 45 representatives from among 90 candidates

The first round of parliamentary elections began on 1 March. The peculiarity of this round was that the elections were held in electronic format, which allowed more citizens to participate. The introduction of an online election system has become a stepping stone on Iran’s path to digitalisation.

The Iranian parliament held elections for its twelfth session. The second round of elections to the Iranian parliament ended on March 10. A total of 245 candidates were allowed to run for the council, and the outcome of these elections decided the fate of the remaining 45 seats in a second round.

Consequently, the reformists secured 7 seats, the Conservatives 32, and independent candidates 6 more seats. This was reported by
IRNA, a partner of TV BRICS.

Thus, representatives of Iran’s conservative parties now control 190 of the 290 seats in the Iranian parliament.

The system of the Islamic Republic is based on popular vote, and the formation of all institutions in the country is based on popular choice.

The participation of citizens in the by-elections to the Iranian parliament this year recorded an increase of 7 per cent compared to similar sessions in previous years.

At an additional stage, the names of the candidates who won the parliamentary elections were determined by voting in 22 electoral districts.

The source reports that the Iranian Parliament of the 12th convocation will officially begin its work on May 27.
