The run-off elections are to be held to elect 56 MPs in the 39 constituencies throughout the country, it added.

Majlis, in its Sunday session, approved double urgency of a bill to postpone run-off election in Tehran constituency. The bill was signed by 18 MPs to add one paragraph to the Article 9 of the Election Law.
