A Tehran City Council member's participation in Tehran was not acceptable

A member of Tehran City Council stated that the participation in Tehran was not acceptable.

The head of the Supervisory and Legal Committee of Tehran City Council unfortunately stated that the participation in Tehran’s electoral district was not acceptable, and we should not turn a blind eye to the fact that a large portion of Tehran citizens did not participate in the elections for various reasons. The consequence of the lack of participation by Tehran citizens was a decrease in the overall national participation rate.

He mentioned that Tehran and Alborz were two provinces whose participation rates contributed to the decrease in the total national participation rate. He added that if the members of the twelfth parliament, who are currently the representatives of the people, do not pay attention to this, they might not understand the message of non-participation from some citizens.

He emphasized that the electoral structure in Tehran’s electoral district and other large districts is an unjust structure. In most districts, citizens usually choose between one or two candidates, but in Tehran’s Rey, Shemiranat, and Pardis, 30 candidates need to be elected based on population distribution. Is it fair that one person in another city has to choose one candidate while one person in Tehran has to choose 30 candidates?
