There have been reports of electoral crimes which have been forwarded to the judiciary for legal pursuit, head of Iran's Elections Headquarters Mohammad Hossein Moqimi said.
He underlined that inspectors from the headquarters are dispatched to all polling stations to make sure of healthy elections, ISNA news agency reported February 26.
Earlier the day, Nasser Bakht, an official with Tehran Governorate said security forces will take action against organized transfer of large numbers of people to capital city Tehran for voting.
A day earlier, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli warned the conservative groups in Iran regarding use of various tricks to win the parliamentary election.
It is against the law to organize trips to bring voters from villages to Tehran in order to cast ballots in favor of political groups or fractions, Rahmani-Fazli said.
According to the law, people can cast votes anywhere for parliament election but it is against the law if they cast ballots not in their own city, intentionally giving support for a specific group, he added.
