Pezeshkian’s endorsement ceremony to be held on July 28

TEHRAN, Jul. 11 (MNA)– The endorsement ceremony of President-Elect Masoud Pezeshkian will be held on July 28 with the participation of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and high-ranking state and military officials.

The endorsement ceremony will be held at the venue of Hosseiniyah of Imam Khomeini (RA).

Pezeshkian received more than 16 million votes against former nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili with more than 13 million out of over 30 million votes cast, electoral authorities said.

"By gaining a majority of the votes cast on Friday, Pezeshkian has become Iran's next president," the interior ministry said.

The runoff on Friday followed a June 28 ballot in a snap election to find a successor to President Ebrahim Raeisi who lost his life with his foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and others in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran.
