Parliamentary elections were held in Iran on 18 February 2000, with a second round on 5 May. The result was a victory for the 2nd of Khordad Front and its allies, which won 195, 216 or 222 of the 290 seats in the Majlis.
The elections were conducted using a two-round system, with the number of candidates progressing to the second round being double the number of seats available. Candidates required an absolute majority to win a seat in the first round, and plurality to win in the second round. Five seats reserved for minority groups including Jews, Zorastrians, Armenians from the north and south of the country and one elected by Assyrians.
Another source cites that reformist enjoyed a majority (69.25%), or 26.8 million, of the 38.7 million voters who cast ballots in the February 18, 2000 first round. Ultimately reformists won 195 of the 290 Majlis seats in that election.
