4k people in row for Parl. Elections so far

TEHRAN, Aug. 10 (MNA) – Iran’s minister of the interior affairs has told reporters he predicts ‘a high turn-out’ for Parliament elections to be held late February 2016.

Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli told a press conference on Monday held in the Ministry of the Interior Affairs that “so far, 4,000 people have announced their possible nomination for parliamentary elections, and famously, they announce so in the wedding and funeral ceremonies for the public.”

“We will hold the elections for Parliament and Assembly of Experts under special circumstances, and predict highly competitive and politically loaded elections, where political parties would challenge their corresponding weights in mobilizing the public,” Rahmani Fazli said.

“The Interior Ministry should prepare the grounds for a healthy, just, and peaceful elections to rule out the rise of any rumors incipient just after the election about interference of unauthorized bodies and organizations in elections,” he told reporters. “President Rouhani’s cabinet assumed administration in a critical condition; in previous elections, the dominant atmosphere had been of political tension and conflict, amid economic maladies infesting the public as well as private economic spheres, which necessitated a new government with fresh staff and mentality toward the situation in the field,” Fazli asserted.
