Psst Iran is having an election...pass it on...

here is the AFP article via one of our local papers.

If voters support the pro-Rouhani list, a coalition of moderate and reformist candidates, the president could swing the balance of power in parliament, creating an opening for social and political reforms on which he has so far been blocked by lawmakers.
 But a one-week official campaign for the parliamentary election has been largely overshadowed by controversies over who was allowed to run for office.

Yes they are a democracy...but you can only get on the ballot if the Mullahs approve, and that eliminates half of those who tried to get on the list.
