Iran's Rouhani wins 2nd term by a wide margin

Danilo Martir | 20 May, 2017, 21:19

Joyful voters cast their ballots for the presidential election at a polling station in Tehran, Iran, Friday, May 19, 2017.

More than 56,400,000 Iranian people were eligible to vote.

Rouhani sided with Putin by criticizing the U.S.'s willingness to arm rebels in Syria, saying an end to the war will need to come through Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Rouhani won Friday's presidential election by securing an absolute majority of the votes.

Polling stations across Iran closed at midnight Friday after sixteen hours.

Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull, reporting from Iran's capital, Tehran, said that Rouhani, during an "increasingly acrimonious election campaign, alienated a lot of Iran's significant state institutions who may be in no mood to cooperate with him going forward". Millions of Iranians vo. He also has history on his side: All incumbent presidents have won re-election since 1981.

Rouhani had promised to extend civil liberties and fight "extremism", while Raisi said he would help the poor and pursue a more puritanical social vision for the country.

Heading into the game, James was averaging 34.8 points, 9.0 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game in these playoffs. I think ultimately they were terrific, we were poor", Stevens said. "That's not for me to be concerned about".

During his campaign trail, Rouhani boasted his administration's success in clinching a nuclear agreement with six world powers in 2015, which mostly lifted nuclear-related sanctions against the country.

Dr. Farhad Taghizadeh-Hesary, a senior assistant to Dean at Asian Development Bank Institute, believes that President Hassan Rouhani in his second term will focus on pouring foreign investment into areas of economy which are more capital oriented such as energy sector, petrochemical industry, infrastructure and so on. "His re-election ensures predictability of Tehran's actions both in relations with Russian Federation and on the most touchy issues on the worldwide agenda", Slutsky told reporters.

Nasrallah was apparently referring to gulf Arab nations that list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. In recent history, Iranian presidents have usually been successful winning a second term. "This is the most important message that our nation expects to be heard by all - particularly world powers".

Rouhani's re-election is likely to safeguard the 2015 agreement, under which most global sanctions have been lifted in return for Iran curbing its nuclear programme. But Iran continues to suffer from high unemployment and a dearth of foreign investment, putting pressure on Rouhani to show he can do more to turn the sluggish economy around. Analysts said a higher turnout would likely benefit Rouhani.

Rouhani, 68, secured an impressive lead of 57 percent in a presidential race which drew out at least seven of every 10 voters in the country. He congratulated him for the "confidence that the Iranian people gave to him to go forward in boosting Iran's status in the region and the world".

The Kremlin said Putin sent a telegram confirming "his readiness to continue active joint work... in line with maintaining stability and security in the Middle East and the world as a whole".

Oil sales have rebounded since the nuclear deal took effect in January previous year, but growth in the rest of the economy has been limited, leaving unemployment at 12.5 percent overall, and at nearly 30 percent among young people.

High society: Pippa Middleton marries at almost-royal event
On Saturday, the Duchess of Cambridge's sis Pippa Middleton married fiancé James Matthews at St Mark's Church, Englefield . Before the wedding, a crowd of well-wishers and reporters gathered outside the church grounds, hoping for a glimpse.

In addition, Russian Federation and Iran are two of the three so-called guarantors of an initiative to establish "safe zones" in Syria. Rouhani's hardline rival Ebrahim Raisi got 15.8 million votes, he said.

On Saturday, Mostafa Agha-Mirsalim and Mostafa Hashemi Taba congratulated Rouhani on the win.

Hassan Rouhani assumed the Presidential office in August 2013 as the 7th President of the country.

The vote tallies were announced in a televised news conference by Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli. Turnout for that vote was 73 percent.

Many of Raisi's critics pointed to his alleged role condemning inmates to death during Iran's 1988 mass execution of thousands of political prisoners, and feared a victory for the hard-liner could worsen human rights in Iran and put the country on a more confrontational path with the West.

Ahmadi says the Interior Ministry hopes to have final results later Saturday. Election officials extended voting hours at least three times.
