Over the past 33 years, the Islamic system has successfully held 29 elections, namely, 10 presidential elections, eight parliamentary elections, four ‎elections to select members of the Assembly of Experts, three ‎elections to select the members of Islamic Councils in the cities and ‎villages, two referendums on the Constitution, one election to designate ‎constitutional experts, and one referendum to determine the political system of ‎the country. Thus, the parliamentary election on March 2 will be the ‎‎30th democratic election held since the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran in ‎‎1979.
