Deadline for Majlis registration expires

Iran's Interior Minister Mohammad-Najjar announced that 5,283 hopefuls, including 4,893 men and 390 women, had submitted their documents by 5:53 local time (0223 GMT) on Friday, the seventh and last day of candidacy registration.

The registrations closed at 5 p.m. local time (0130 GMT) on December 30, 2011. Officials have announced that an extension on the deadline is unlikely.

Iran's Guardian Council, which is tasked with supervising the elections, will then vet possible candidates.

Registrations for the 9th Majlis elections, which is scheduled to be held on March 2, began with an opening ceremony attended by Interior Minister Mohammad-Najjar and several other senior Iranian officials in Tehran on Saturday.

According to Iran's electoral law, potential candidates must be Iranian in nationality, of sound body and mind, between 30 to 75 years of age, have no criminal record, uphold the values of the Islamic Republic, abide by the Iranian Constitution and hold a master's degree.

Iran's Deputy Interior Minister Solat Mortazavi has also announced this term's election process will be computerized “from the beginning to the end.”

But in most of the polls we will have paper ballots and in case of any objections to the results we are able to recount the votes both automatically and manually,” he added.
