Tehran(ANN)- Iranians headed to the polls on Friday for snap presidential elections that could be the most important for the country in decades.

Accoding to IRNA – On Friday at 08:00 local time, the 14th presidential election – the first presidential election – began in Iran.

A total of 61,452,321 voters are eligible to participate in the 14th presidential election.

Iran’s Election Headquarters has set up over 58,000 polling stations nationwide in preparation for the 14th Iranian presidential election on 28 June. As many as 58,640 polling stations in Iran and 344 others abroad have been set up for the 14th presidential election.

Iranian citizens living in many countries around the world are voting in the election of the president of Iran, such as Canada, the UK and other countries.

London England’s police have arrested some anti-Revolution elements who attempted to disrupt the voting process of Iran’s 14th presidential election at Birmingham’s polling station.

The police of England on Friday detained some anti-Revolution elements who attempted to disrupt the voting process of Iran’s 14th presidential election at a polling station in Birmingham.

Police have not yet issued an official statement on the incident, but a Birmingham polling station election executive member informed IRNA in London that police officers were present and preparing reports.

The police have dispersed individuals, and the voting process at the polling station is ongoing despite rioters’ attempts to dissuade Iranian nationals, the source added.

Iranians have headed to the polls at five polling stations in London since the voting has started.

Other stations in Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Cardiff, and Glasgow are prepared for the Iranian nationals in the UK to cast their votes.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei cast his vote at a polling station in Tehran just as the voting started.


Iran’s two presidential candidates, Alireza Zakani and Amir-Hossein Ghazizadeh Hashemi, have announced their withdrawal from the 2024 election.

The remaining candidates are Saeed Jalili, former nuclear negotiator, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, speaker of Iran’s parliament, Mostafa Pourmohammadi, former interior minister, and Masoud Pezeshkian, former health minister.

Meanwhile, the IRGC aerospace chief heaped praise on Ghalibaf before race.

One of the highest-ranking and most influential commanders in the IRGC has put his weight behind Ghalibaf – a former commander of the IRGC air force – in the run-up to the election without officially endorsing him.

In a campaign-style event shown in Ghalibaf’s election documentary on state television, IRGC aerospace chief Amir Ali Hajizadeh told a crowd of hundreds how instrumental Ghalibaf has been in advancing the country’s key missile programme, and the IRGC itself.

“Someone who made the missile programme expand this much and his name was not said anywhere … but today we can say it freely, is Dr Ghalibaf,” he said to cheers.

“He enabled laying a foundation that allows us today to have at least one base in every town, city and province.”

In a video earlier this week that was also perceived as tacit support for Ghalibaf, Hajizadeh said the country – as instructed by the supreme leader – most of all requires someone with “strong executive management” experience

During the debates, iraninan candidates clashed over nuclear programme law President Hassan Rouhani was hard at work during his final year in office to set the grounds for the restoration of the JCPOA, the flagship achievement of his eight-year tenure, which ended in 2021.
In December 2020, parliament chief Ghalibaf championed a law demanding uranium enrichment up to 60 percent and restricting international inspectors to try to force Washington to lift the sanctions or face a nuclear-threshold Iran.


During the debate stage of this election, when the law came up, Rouhani told a gathering that a plan to resuscitate the JCPOA had been approved by all except one unnamed individual in the Supreme National Security Council.

He said the nuclear law was “treason and conspiracy against the people” that dealt a $100bn blow to the Iranian economy each year.
At a campaign rally in the holy Shia city of Qom earlier this month, Ghalibaf blasted Rouhani for “complacency” in negotiations.

“They said there will be war if we do certain things. Was there when we increased enrichment to 20 percent and then 60 percent?” he say.
