Iran’s snap presidential election in progress

Iranians are heading to the polls to cast their votes in a snap presidential election, prompted by the unexpected death of Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash. This election comes at a time of heightened public frustration and political tension within the country.

The four candidates on the ballot are all considered to be loyal to the supreme leader and are part of a tightly controlled group. This limited choice has sparked concerns among many Iranians about the lack of genuine competition and the potential for a lack of representation for diverse political views.

Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr is reporting from Tehran, where voters are participating in this important election despite the challenges and limitations they may face in expressing their political preferences.

As the election unfolds, all eyes are on Iran to see how the country’s leadership will change and evolve in response to the outcome of this pivotal vote. #IranElection2024 #IranVotes #PresidentialElection #IranPolitics #SnapElection #IranianVote #LeadershipChange #SupremeLeaderChoice.
