Guardian Council neutral on provincial parliamentary polls

April 27, 2019

TEHRAN - The Guardian Council neither supports nor opposes parliamentary elections at provincial level, its spokesman Abbasali Kadkhodaei has said.

However provincial elections should not lead to a reduced communication between representatives and their constituencies or decrease election turnout, Kadkhodaei remarked, ISNA reported on Saturday.

He also said the Guardian Council will comment on the issue after the Expediency Council makes a decision, ISNA reported on Saturday.

Last month, Vice President for Parliamentary Affairs Hossein-Ali Amiri said that the Rouhani administration is in favor of the bill that changes parliamentary elections from local to provincial levels.
