Organizations: Serious flaws in the Iranian electoral system

Published: Updated:

Human Rights Watch released a report outlining serious flaws in the Iranian electoral system which they say are damaging prospects for free and fair parliamentary elections on February 26th.

The report states that this is due to Iranian authorities not allowing the majority of candidates to run due to discriminatory and arbitrary criteria, as well as the fact that many political activists and journalists remain in prison for exercising their rights.
