Reactions from Radio Farda listeners calling from different cities in Iran:
"My name is Mohammad. Certainly, Mr. [Hassan] Rohani win will the election, we are very happy now. Today is Saturday, and we’re going to celebrate."
"I’m Amin from the city of Bandar Abbas. Many people voted for [Hassan] Rohani here.Whoever I met, I told them to vote for Rohani because he is better than [Mohammad Baqer] Qalibaf. But only half of the people who voted in the past election came to vote this time. If the next president were to improve things it would be nice. Otherwise they should not expect anyone to show up to vote in the next election."
"I’m a Radio Farda listener. I’ve been sitting here and listening to the developments since the morning. I voted for [Hassan] Rohani. I hope, he gets office and works to bring the country out of crisis."
"I’m calling from Mashhad. Although I’m not allowed to talk to foreign media, I would like to say that until yesterday we thought that our votes wouldn’t count. But today I can say with all certainty that we are a democratic society, and our votes will be counted, and will be heard."
"If there is a second round, we will vote for [Hassan] Rohani again."
My prayers are with the people of Iran as they await imminent announcement of the result of today's poll.— ahmed shaheed (@ahmedshaheed) June 15, 2013
