Iran prepares for presidential runoff: foreign ministry makes arrangements for expatriates to vote

The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has finalized preparations to allow expatriates to participate in the upcoming presidential runoff election on July 5, Acting Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani announced on Monday.

Iran (IMNA) - According to Bagheri, the necessary arrangements have been made for Iranian citizens living abroad to vote in all countries except Canada, which he accused of violating human rights and siding with terrorists. The diplomat cited Canada's decision to label the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a "terrorist entity" and refusal to allow Iran's presidential election on its soil.

The presidential election was held on June 28, a year ahead of schedule, following the death of President Ebrahim Raeisi in a helicopter crash in May. Masoud Pezeshkian and Saeed Jalili will face off in the runoff election on July 5 after garnering the highest number of votes in the first round.
