ANKARA: Iranian opposition leader cleric Mehdi Karoubi voted in Iran’s elections on Friday, casting a ballot for the first time since being put under house arrest in 2011, the Kaleme website reported.

“Karoubi voted at his home where he has been under house arrest. A mobile ballot box was taken to his home,” the website reported.

The Interior Ministry said on Wednesday that all Iranians would be able to vote for parliament and the Assembly of Experts, the body that chooses the country’s top leader.
