Incumbent Iranian president Hassan Rouhani was reelected for the second term, gaining 57 percent of the votes - more than 50 percent necessary to secure the victory, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said Saturday after all the votes have been counted.

Axar.az reports citing Sputnik news.

Over 40 million people voted in Friday’s presidential election, with a total of 56 million in Iran being eligible to vote. A turnout of roughly 70 percent led authorities to extend voting time by several hours until midnight.

Besides Rouhani, three candidates run for presidency, namely, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' (IRGC) Ayatollah Ebrahim Raisi, former Vice President Mostafa Hashemi-Taba, and head of the Islamic Coalition Party’s Central Council Mostafa Aqa-Mirsalim.
