Iran is set to hold a snap presidential election on June 28.

On Monday, dozens of presidential contenders registered their candidacy on the last day for aspirants to enter the race. The elections will decide the successor of martyred President Ebrahim Raeisi, who lost his life in a helicopter crash last month.
