Iranians in Lebanon lined up to vote Friday outside polling stations at the Iranian Embassy in Beirut, in the eastern city of Baalbeck and the southern district of Nabatieh in the Iran’s presidential elections.
The Iranian ambassador to Lebanon, Mohammad-Jalal Firouznia, cast his vote, noting that the participation in the vote in Lebanon is higher than that which occurred in the former elections.
Firouznia indicated that Iran follows the religious democracy, adding that the Iranian people will prove commitment to Islamic Republic regime despite the hostile propaganda of the nation’s foes.
Meanwhile, Iranians on Friday participated, with a heavy turnout, in the 13th presidential election, the 6th City and Village Councils elections, as well as the Parliament and the Assembly of Experts’ midterm election.
Polling stations across Iran opened at 7 am local time and will continue to receive voters until midnight. The Interior Ministry says it may extend the election period until 2 am Saturday if necessary.
