BANGKOK, June 18 (TNA) – About 200 Iranians who live in Thailand took turns to vote for their new president at the Iranian embassy in Bangkok.
The embassy held overseas polling for the 13th time after the 1979 Iranian Revolution.
Overseas polling for the new Iranian president happened worldwide today. The Iranian embassy in Bangkok started the activity at 8am and extended it until 6pm to prevent crowding in a bid to help contain COVID-19.

The polling happened smoothly and was safe for public health, he said. (TNA)
