The 13th presidential election started in Iran early Friday, allowing any Iranian citizen over the age of 18 to cast a vote.
Initially, there were seven candidates for the presidential post in Iran, but only four have continued to compete for the position. Among them are a top judge, Ebrahim Raisi; the Central Bank chief, Abdolnaser Hemmati; a lawmaker, Sayyid Ghazizadeh, and Mohsen Rezaee, the head of Iran's Expediency Discernment Council.
The incumbent president is not running, as Iran has a two-term limit for the presidency.
