Iranians began voting on Friday in a crucial parliamentary election, with supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei shown casting the first ballot in Tehran on state television.

As he voted, Khamenei called on all Iranians to take part in the election "as soon as possible", adding that doing so would "guarantee the country's national interests".
