Despite the hot weather, dozens of Iranian expatriates gathered at their embassy to cast their votes in the second round of the presidential elections.

Iranian Ambassador to Kuwait, H.E. Mohammad Totonji, expressed his happiness with the significant turnout, highlighting the community’s dedication to shaping the future of their homeland.

According to Totonji, “The scene of shaping the future of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the next four years took place in an honest and fair atmosphere, contributing to the country’s future and enhancing security and stability in the region.”

Ambassador Totonji emphasized that all candidates participated in open and honest debates, which were broadcasted by Iranian media. Both candidates, Saeed Jalili and Masoud Pezeshkian, presented their ideas and programs, allowing the Iranian people to make an informed choice.

He praised the political awareness and patriotism of the Iranian expatriates in Kuwait, who braved the heat to vote, showing their love for both Iran and Kuwait.

He expressed hope that the elected president would meet the expectations of the voters, who have demonstrated a remarkable enthusiasm, reaffirming the sovereignty of the people and preserving Iran’s regional and international status.

He noted that higher voter turnout would signal to the world the necessity of engaging with Iran with respect and equality.

Ambassador Totonji also thanked the Ministry of Interior for their organizational efforts, ensuring the smooth conduct of the voting process.
