Iran election – will young Iranians take part in crucial vote?

In Iran, the regime’s popularity will be put to the test tomorrow in the first election since the mass protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody.

It’s been imploring people to come out and make their voices heard by voting – amid concerns of a record low turnout.

But the mass disqualification of moderate candidates and the crackdown on dissent has left many feeling their voices won’t be heard.

Especially young Iranians, who spend every day navigating restrictions imposed by their own government, as well as international sanctions.
