Iran's Interior Ministry official source for results of ballot boxes abroad: FM spox

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani says the country's Interior Ministry is the official source for the announcement of the results of ballot boxes set up outside Iran for the 14th presidential election.

Kanaani on Friday rejected unofficial reports on vote counting at certain Iranian embassies as lacking in authenticity and validity. 

The official went on to say that Iranian Interior Ministry is the official source for the announcement of the results of ballot boxes set up at diplomatic missions outside the country for the 14th presidential election.

As many as 58,640 polling stations in Iran and 344 others abroad have been set up for the 14th presidential election.

Over 61 million Iranians are eligible to vote in the election.

Amirhossein Ghazizadeh Hashemi and Alireza Zakani have dropped their candidacy.

Saeed Jalili, Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, Massoud Pezeshkian, and Mostafa Pourmohammadi have remained in the race.

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

On May 19, 2024 a helicopter carrying late Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, late Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and several other officials crashed while flying from Khudafarin to Tabriz, and the Iranian president and the entire accompanying delegation were martyred.
