Polls open in Iran presidential election

More than 59 million eligible voters in Iran will decide the fate of four candidates in the fray to succeed President Hassan Rouhani.

Polls have opened in Iran’s presidential election amid concerns of a low turnout.

More than 59 million eligible voters in Iran will decide the fate of four candidates in the fray to succeed President Hassan Rouhani.

With uncertainty surrounding Iran’s efforts to revive its 2015 nuclear deal and growing poverty at home after years of United States sanctions, the turnout for the vote is being seen by Iranian analysts as a referendum on the leadership’s handling of an array of crises.

“Each vote counts … come and vote and choose your president … this is important for the future of your country,” said Supreme Leader Ali Hosseini Khamenei after casting his vote in the capital, Tehran.
