Jews take part in Iranian election

Location: TEHRAN, Iran
March 2, 2012

A Jewish Iranian man looks at the codes for the two Jewish candidates participating in the parliamentary election in Tehran March 2, 2012. Iranians voted on Friday in a parliamentary election which is expected to reinforce the power of the clerical establishment of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei over hardline political rivals led by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  The constitution guarantees one Jewish member of parliament to represent Iran’s 25,000 strong Jewish community.
