    High Turnout in Election

    High Turnout in Election Proves Nation's Trust in Islamic Republic the people's massive participation in the 11th presidential election in Iran on Friday, and said such high turnout indicted the nation's trust in the Islamic Republic and Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
    The massive and heavy presence of the people at the polling stations shows their trust in the Islamic Republic and indicates that the people are completely ensured that their votes are safeguarded and no problem may happen to their votes.
    The depth of the people's confidence in the Supreme Leader and his stronger trust in the nation was displayed more yesterday.
    Foreign reporters and journalists covering the elections were astounded to see large crowds standing in long queues at polling stations.

    The BBC reporter said he has sighted areas with high public turnout and long queues of voters.

    "There were very, very long queues on Sajjad Street in the eastern city of Mashhad," a BBC Tehran Bureau correspondent reported.

    "Both the women's and men's lines were overflowing. People were very excited and optimistic. They were talking about Ayatollah Khamenei's speech after he voted," he added.

    Early poll results on Saturday showed that Hassan Rouhani, the former Iranian nuclear negotiator, is running ahead of the other candidates.
