Campaigns intensified as Election Day draws closer

The campaigns have changed the appearance of cities and villages, and all the posters and flyers have created an election atmosphere in the country and encouraged discussions and even debates on the candidates.

In villages and small cities, there is fierce competition between rival candidates. And turnout is expected to be much higher in villages and small cities.

Some candidates are even making outlandish campaign promises, to the extent that some religious and political figures have warned candidates against making promises that they cannot keep.

According to an opinion poll conducted this week, about 37 percent of respondents in Tehran said they would be voting in the election.

Many political analysts say that the results will lead to run-off elections for some of Tehran’s 30 parliamentary seats.

The poll shows a 7 percent increase in the number of potential voters in Tehran in comparison to last week, and it is predicted that the figure will reach 40 percent by Friday, which is election day.

In recent parliamentary elections, the average turnout in Tehran was about 30 percent.

According to a nationwide survey, more than 57 percent of eligible voters will vote in the elections.

The survey shows that 15 percent of potential voters are still undecided, and it is predicted that the number of voters will increase in comparison to previous parliamentary elections.
