Iran (15962 words)
Conservative candidates won a majority of seats in the February Seventh Majlis election that was widely perceived as neither free nor fair, due to the Council of Guardians' exclusion of thousands of qualified candidates.
In screening for the February Seventh Majlis elections, the Guardian Council ruled approximately 2,500 of the over 8,000 prospective candidates ineligible to run, including 85 sitting reformist deputies; this was one factor leading to conservatives winning a majority of seats.
Elections that were widely perceived as neither free nor fair were held for the 290-seat Majlis in February.
A Great Election Day for Iranian Nation (1187 words)
The leader said the seventh Majlis elections are very significant and sensitive because the enemies are mustering all their might in the vain hopes of discouraging people from going to the polls.
While visiting the election headquarters of the Interior Ministry and casting his vote, President Mohammad Khatami said whatever the results of the election they should be accepted by everyone.
He said he is sure the people would vote in the election using their political insight and their knowledge about the candidates, charging the executive and supervisory officials to protect people’s votes strongly.
