Also in Baghdad, Iranians, especially women, enthusiastically took part in the election.

Nearly 2,500 Iranians, mostly women who have married Iraqi spouses, live in the capital of the neighboring country.

The envoy praised the Iraqi officials who have prepared the suitable ground for holding this important political event.

Polls opened at 8 a.m. local time (0430 GMT) today. 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 ballot at a polling station in Tehran just as the voting started.
