Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has cast his ballots in Iran's 11th presidential and 4th city and rural council elections as the polls officially opened across the country. Speaking to reporters after casting his votes minutes after the opening of the polls early Friday, the Leader stressed the importance of the Iranian nation's "effective, timely, massive and enthusiastic" participation in the elections.

"The dear Iranian people should enter the scene of elections with fervor and motivation, and [they should] know that the destiny of the country and prosperity of the nation depend on their presence and the choice they make," Ayatollah Khamenei stated. The Leader said the Iranian people play a key role in determining their fate, and that is the reason behind enemies' propaganda campaigns against the nation.

The enemies have made every effort to create voter apathy in Iran by trying to incite "cynicism and despair" among Iranians, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
