Iran set to announce complete results of councils polls

An Iranian casts a ballot during a general election.

Iran’s Central Supervisory Board for City and Rural Council Elections says the complete results of the June 14 city and rural councils polls are set to be announced.

The results will be announced by June 18, said Mohammad-Javad Kolivand, spokesman for the board, on Sunday.

After the announcement of the vote tally, he said, the candidates would have two days to lodge any complaints with the relevant executive bodies.

Some 200,000 candidates ran in the 4th city and rural council elections on June 14 concurrent with Iran’s 11th presidential poll.

The city and rural Islamic councils are local establishments that are elected by public vote in all cities and villages across the country. Council members in each city or village are elected for a four-year term.

The councils are tasked with helping the Islamic Republic’s social, economic, cultural and educational advancement by encouraging public cooperation.
