Iranians are voting in a presidential contest which pits President Hassan Rouhani against a serious challenger، Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi، in what is believed to be a close race.

Some 63،500 polling stations opened at 08:00 local time (0330 GMT) Friday for long lines which had already formed around the country where more than 56 million are eligible to vote.

Polls close at 18:00 (1330 GMT)، but voting hours will most likely be extended as the country has seen in previous elections، amid expectations of a high turnout.
