Rouhani to run for second term as president of Iran

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:27

Mr Rouhani was elected by a landslide in 2013, on a platform of ending the country's diplomatic isolation and creating a freer society.

So how does it all work and what happens next?

Associated Press journalists watched as Rouhani, 68, registered Friday — the fourth day of the registration period which ends on Saturday evening. It's still a lot of candidates, though.

Ahmadinejad's decision could upend an election many believed would be won by moderate President Hassan Rouhani, who negotiated the nuclear deal with world powers.

"He has no experience in foreign policy, so at least initially he will have to follow the system's grand strategy of preserving the nuclear deal and shifting any blame of undermining it to the USA", said International Crisis Group Iran analyst Ali Vaez.

She entered politics by joining her father's party at 18. "The FN top brass has chose to go full throttle for far-right voters". But that threat is precisely why Europe must address seriously the possibility of her winning, however unlikely it may seem.

Several former ministers and former president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad are among those who have registered.

Raisi, a former Tehran deputy prosecutor, is Chairman of the Astan Quds Razavi charitable foundation and a close ally of Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

"The production capacity of industrial and defense organizations has increased by 148% and the exports of defense sector by 227 percent...", the president said, comparing the figures to those in 2013 when he took office.

The 12 per cent jobless rate and slow trickle down of benefits from the nuclear deal are seen as Rouhani's weak spots. Who can run for the presidency in Iran? That's not to say it will be easy for Rouhani.

Two years later his government and six other countries reached a landmark deal, in which Iran agreed to curb its sensitive nuclear activities in return for the lifting of economic sanctions. For voters, the economy matters.

The conservative-controlled Guardian Council will vet the hundreds of registered hopefuls over the coming week, before releasing a final list of candidates. The council controls elections and must approve all laws passed by parliament.

Ahmadinejad said the strike on Syria could have happened even if Hillary Clinton had won the US election.

Thus, the leadership question in Iran is about more than the presidency and the other governing bodies, particularly since the death on January 8, at age 84, of Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Chairman of the powerful Expediency Discernment Council.

In September 2016, local media quoted Iran's Supreme Leader as saying that "I do not find it advisable that you (Ahmadinejad) participate" in the next presidential elections.
