(RAHNUMA) The thirteenth presidential election of Iran will be held on Friday, June 18, 2021. Due to the presence of a large number of Iranian citizens and students in south India, three polling stations in the cities of Hyderabad, Bangalore and Rajahmundry will collect the votes of Iranian citizens at the same time as Iran.
Elections will be held for a duration of ten hours between 8 am to 6 pm on 18th June, and all Iranians over the age of 18 are eligible for voting.
According to the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Hyderabad, which is responsible for holding these elections in south India, all necessary coordination has been done with government and state officials to
conduct the elections. Also, regarding the Corona pandemic, the necessary arrangements have been made to carry out all health protocols and a suitable place to maintain the social distance.
With this election held, the number of elections and referendums during the 42-year-old Islamic Republic of Iran would increase to 39, meaning that, almost every year, there has been a platform for people to have their voice
heard by taking part in a democratic process.
Almost every Iranian official, from the Leader of the revolution to the President and the members of the parliament, is, either directly or indirectly, elected by the people.
