According to the country's interior ministry, some 55 million people are eligible to vote in Friday's parliamentary poll. They will also vote in the Assembly of Experts election, an influential clerical council charged with selecting Iran’s next supreme leader.

The streets in the capital are adorned with leaflets featuring the faces of the 6,200 candidates running for the parliament and the Assembly. Street gatherings are banned, but in a sports stadium in Tehran, a crowd of thousands has gathered in support of the reformist camp. A conservative rally in one of the capital's mosques is more subdued.
