Iran’s election authorities have extended voting for two more hours as people queue up to cast their votes in the country’s parliamentary election on Friday.
The voting finished at 24:00 on Friday after the deadline was extended several times.
The voting had earlier been extended until 20:00, then until 22:00 and finally until 24:00.
Now that the voting has finished, the ballots are being counted.
More than 7,000 candidates are competing to enter the parliament. A winning candidate must have at least 20 percent of the votes cast in their constituency in order to become lawmaker for a four-year term.
A total of 57,918,000 people are eligible to cast their ballots. There would be one lawmaker at Majlis per each 190,000-strong segment of the Iranian population.
