Tehran, Iran, Jun. 24 – A tour of a dozen polling centres in the western neighbourhoods of Tehran between 2 pm and 6 pm, usually a busy voting time, showed that they were mostly quiet, confirming reports from other parts of the capital that the turnout is lower than last Friday.

No more than a handful of voters were spotted at polling centres in Hejab School in Youssef-Abad district, Ebrahim School in Azadi Street, Qaem School in Behbudi Street, and Chamran School in Azadi Street.

Independent monitors in other neighbourhoods of Tehran reported a similarly low turnout. Voting centres at the Abolfazl Mosque and Motahhari Training College in Seraj Street, Imam Reza Training Centre in Zamani Street were completely deserted some five hours after the start of voting today.

A polling centre in the normally bustling neighbourhood of Amir-Abad in downtown Tehran was deserted at midday. A young girl was holding a portrait of Hashemi Rafsanjani outside the polling centre.

“They paid me well to do this,” she said when asked if she was a Rafsanjani supporter. “But I’m not voting and I suggest you don’t, either”.
