Potential candidates can register for the elections from December 24 to 30, said Seyyed Solat Mortazavi, who is also the deputy Interior Minister, told IRNA on Saturday.

He added that since May 24 the Elections Headquarters has begun preparations for the Majlis vote scheduled for March 2, 2012.

The Iranian official urged potential candidates to abide by the country's law because breaking the law is a red-line. He added that the early campaigning activities of certain individuals preparing to announce their candidacy would be monitored and necessary action would be taken.

When asked about the possibility of any increase in the number of Majlis lawmakers, Mortazavi said that based on Article 64 of the Iranian Constitution, the number of legislators can be increased by 20 once every 10 years.

He added that the “government has prepared this bill (to increase lawmakers) and presented it to Majlis” and it is being reviewed by parliament.
