Capetown, South Africa (IP) - Iranian expatriates residing in South Africa are participating in their country's snap presidential election at a polling station set up at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the center of Cape Town.

Iran PressAfrica: Despite a working day in South Africa, voters have been steadily arriving at the polling station to exercise their democratic rights. Officials expect the turnout to increase as the day progresses. Voting for the 14th presidential election of the Islamic Republic of Iran is in four key cities across South Africa, including the capital Pretoria.

The outcome will have far-reaching implications for Iran's domestic and foreign policies in the future.

As Iranians around the world make their voices heard, the world watches closely to see who will emerge victorious and lead Iran through the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
