The newly-elected Iranian lawmakers held their very first session of the 11th Parliament after the victory of the Islamic Revolution on Wednesday.

The first meeting of the new Parliament [Majlis] kicked off on Wednesday morning with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Judiciary Chief Hojatoleslam Sayyed Ebrahim Raeisi, and Secretary of the Guardian Council Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati in attendance.

The oldest lawmakers have formed a transitional presiding board, and are going to decide on a date to hold a session to endorse the credentials of the new MPs and elect an official presiding board.

The Iranian parliament is composed of 290 seats. The lawmakers are elected for a 4-year term, with no limitation for the incumbent or former parliamentarians to run again.
