Who is voting in Iran's parliamentary elections?

Iranians will be voting in the country's parliamentary elections on 2nd of March.

This year 48 million people are eligible to vote and the turn out in the last parliamentary elections - was 61%.

There are 290 seats up for grabs and this round aims to square a quarter of the vote - failing that - there will be a second round.

However, with 31% of candidates deemed unsuitable and two of Iran's main opposition leaders under house arrest - some people are getting cold feet.

Some Iranians have shared with BBC Persian their views on the elections. Their faces have been hidden for security reasons.

This video was produced by BBC Persian.
