Turning to Iran...
 
Iranians are casting their votes for the hotly contested presidential election. 
 
The Iranian Interior Ministry has officially announced the names of incumbent President Hassan Rouhani, Ebrahim Raisi, Mostafa Agha-Mirsalim and Mostafa Hashemi Taba as the four hopefuls for the Friday presidential election.   
 
Nearly 56 million Iranians are eligible voters.

"It is estimated that the hardliners vote will be around 10 million, and that of the reformists will be about 15 million. So, 25 million will determinedly take part in the election as they do not need any persuasion."
 
Yet nearly 30 million voters are uninclined to vote in the election and many are still undecided.

"It means that if President Rouhani can persuade the undecided, he will have a huge success, because at this moment he has at least 15 million votes, and if he can persuade 20 percent, or if he manages to attract a third of them, his vote can easily jump above 20 million."
