Elections

The Iran Data Portal provides data on all parliamentary and presidential elections in the Islamic Republic to date (1979-), as well as all elections for the Assembly of Experts, which in turn elects the Supreme Leader. Here you will find the electoral data published by Iran's Ministry of the Interior, translations of the electoral laws and bylaws, as well as the parliamentary handbooks with individual MP biographies for each legislative period.

Where possible, data is broken down to the province level, in the case of the 2009 presidential elections even down to the ballot box.

The Ministry of the Interior is the official body administering all elections and is the only official source for all election results. The Islamic Republic of Iran does not accept international election monitoring.

Because of its historic significance, the Iran Data Portal features extensive data on the 2009 presidential election, including statements made by important political, social and clerical individuals and groups. These can be found under the link to the 2009 Presidential Elections.

The Iran Data Portal does not feature electoral data from the municipal elections (1999, 2003, 2006, 2011), since the data available is too sketchy to date.
