Then, Mr. Alireza Rohani, a member of the Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC), thanked FEFA for organizing the meeting and said, “Given the law, the initial body for handling the electoral complaints is provincial offices of IECC but in case the decisions made by the provincial offices are not acceptable for the complainants then they can record their complaints in central office of the IECC.” He added that IECC HQ handles the following complaints as well: • The complicated cases which obligate the IECC to handle them in its HQ. • When the provincial offices of IECC are not active. He added that the IECC had to take preparation for handling the complaints on candidates’ preliminary lists in 3 levels: 1.
