Election turnout at 41%, interior minister says

Iran’s interior minister puts the number of people who voted in the Friday parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections at 25 million.

Election turnout 41%, interior minister says

Ahmad Vahidi said invalid votes made up 5% of the total vote count.

Ineligible votes or those for non-nominated people also constitute 8% of the ballots, Vahidi said.

The interior minister said that the voter turnout is 41% and, in some constituencies, where candidates failed to get the required minimum 20% of the votes cast, a run-off will be held in May.

In Tehran, which accounts for 30 seats in parliament, a second round will also be held for 16 seats.
