More than 3,000 to contest parliamentary election

Another 1,200 people were rejected from the list "for various reasons, and others withdrew," said the spokesman for the Guardians Council tasked with overseeing elections in the Islamic republic, according to several media.

The March 2 vote will be the first nationwide poll in Iran since the 2009 presidential election.

Among those excluded by the Guardians Council - a panel of conservative jurists and clerics - were 33 members of the outgoing parliament, according to reports.

Candidates have to be aged 30 to 75 and hold a master's degree or equivalent.
