LED IN: Iranian women take electoral leaflets of a group of female conservative candidates in the upcoming parliamentary elections in a campaign gathering in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016. Iranians will hold elections for their 290-seat parliament on Feb. 26, while both reformists and conservatives have focused on improving the economic situation of the country, which is still feeling the effects of years of international sanctions. On the same day as parliamentary elections, voting will take place for Iran's 88-member clerical body known as the Assembly of Experts, which will one day pick a successor to 76-year-old Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
