Ibrahim Raeisi, a radical, has won Iran’s presidential election. After winning with 62 per cent votes, Raisi has become the 13th President of the country.
Shortly before the election results came out (after counting 90 per cent of the votes), he thanked the citizens for their victory and said that they would live up to the trust of all.
Raeesi met current President Hassan Rouhani after which the two leaders appeared before the media. Raisi said that his government would do its best to work for the betterment of the people.
Raisi will be sworn in at the beginning of August this year. It is believed that he will have a great influence in the domestic politics and foreign affairs of the country.
In Iran’s political system, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has the final say on all issues related to the country. After the Supreme Leader, the second largest post in the country is held by the President.
