Iranians voted in a runoff election to replace the late President Ebrahim Raisi, who died in a helicopter crash. The candidates are hard-liner Saeed Jalili and reformist Masoud Pezeshkian. The initial vote saw record-low turnout, and public apathy remains high due to economic issues and political tensions. Calls for a boycott have emerged, but no significant opposition movement exists. The election occurs amid heightened Middle East tensions, including Iran’s direct attack on Israel and its ongoing uranium enrichment. Women and radical change advocates are barred from the ballot, and there is no international oversight.
