The counting of votes for the presidential election in Iran has been completed. In this election, no candidate has got enough votes to win. After the counting of votes was completed, election spokesperson Mohsin Islami said that now there will be a direct contest between Pezeshkian and Jalili on July 5.

This is how Iran's president will be elected

In the presidential election in Iran, no candidate has received enough votes to win. According to Iran's law, a candidate can be declared the winner only if he gets more than 50 percent of the votes and if this does not happen, then there will be a direct contest between the top two candidates. After the counting of votes was completed, election spokesman Mohsen Islami said that there will be a direct contest between Pezeshkian and Jalili on July 5.

Mohsin Islami announced the election results. According to this, no one got more than 50 percent of the votes, meaning no one got an absolute majority. Therefore, now the election of the top two candidates will be held again on Friday. This contest will be between reformist candidate Masoud Pezeshkian and hardline Saeed Jalili on Friday.

Who got how many votes

The election spokesperson said that out of a total of 24.5 million votes, Pezeshkian got 14 million and Jalili got 94 million votes. Radical Speaker of Parliament Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf got 33 lakh votes and Shia religious leader Mustafa Pourmohammadi got about 2,06,000 votes. After this it is clear that radical Speaker of Parliament Mohammad Bagher and Mustafa Pourmohammadi are out of the race for the presidential election. However, their support will prove to be very important and decisive.

So many percent voting took place

This time the Guardian Council in Iran was expecting a huge turnout in the elections. However, due to economic hardship and restrictions on social freedom, very few people voted. According to the calculations released by the Interior Ministry on Saturday, 40 percent voting took place in Iran. This election is taking place at a time when tensions are rising due to the war between Israel and Iranian allies Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon. Also, Western pressure is mounting on Iran over its rapidly growing nuclear program.
