Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, Minister of Interior of Iran, stated that his ministry would take necessary measures to hold the upcoming parliamentary elections using electronic voting, upon an approval by the country’s Guardian Council according to the Constitution.

He added that if electronic voting is not adopted, the voting would take place in transparent ballot boxes through which the ballots are visible but not readable.

He also stated that the identity of the voters would be verified during the elections by an online mechanism which connects the voting centers to the electoral commission.

Earlier in August, the minister announced that around 4,000 people had already registered to run for the seats of the upcoming parliamentary elections, scheduled to be held by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 2016).
