Iran judiciary head Ebrahim Raisi is set to become the country's new president as millions came out to vote on Friday. However, thousands of Iranian citizens boycotted the vote over the economic crisis and curbs on freedom in the country. "I urge everyone with any political view to vote. Our people's grievances over shortcomings are real, but if it is the reason for not participating, then it is wrong," Raisi said.
