Yeganli's resignation was accepted by a vote of 113 in favor and 35 against with 6 abstentions from a total of 154 votes cast.

The Orumiyeh MP, along with 107 other MPs, tendered their resignations to Majlis Speaker Mehdi Karroubi on February 1 in protest at the mass disqualification of candidates wanting to stand in the 7th Majlis election.

As per Article 92 of the Majlis by-laws, any Majlis deputy can resign from his/her post but the resignation becomes effective only after acceptance by Majlis.

However, Article 95 of the same by-laws provides that if the offer to resign of any MP results in the Majlis failing to reach a quorum, the offer cannot be passed upon by Majlis.
