Iran Election: Polls open to elect new president

Iranians are heading to the polls to elect a new president following the tragic death of Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash earlier this year. The unexpected snap election was called after the crash in May, which claimed the lives of eight people.

In the Islamic Republic, elections are tightly controlled, with candidates being vetted by a committee of clerics before they can run for office. Despite the strict regulations, the Iranian people are still exercising their democratic right to choose their next leader.

The outcome of this election will have significant implications for Iran’s future, both domestically and internationally. With tensions running high in the region, the choice of the new president will be closely watched by observers around the world.
