Effect of Call for Iran Vote Boycott Still Unclear Iran's disputed parliamentary elections took place Friday. Reformers called for a boycott because most of their candidates were barred from running by the country's hard-line clerics. It's not clear at this point how widespread the boycott was. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with NPR's Mike Shuster, who visited two polling places -- one was virtually deserted, another jammed with voters. It seems inevitable that Iran's next Parliament will be more conservative.
