TEHRAN Majlis on Monday approved the double-urgency of the bill on amendment to the Press Law.
Interior Minister Abdolvahed Mousavi Lari told IRNA here Monday that the bill envisions holding parliamentary by-elections in coordination with the Guardian Council (GC) within a maximum of five months of announcement of election tally in the constituencies whose election results are not confirmed.
Under the bill, the Interior Ministry would announce the date for the by-election in coordination with the GC, Lari added.
He expressed hope that by-elections and the 8th presidential polls would be held simultaneously next year.
