Iran will vote in favor of new president banned by reformists – BBC News




The people of Iran are voting in favor of a new president as the country faces major challenges, from the pandemic to the economic crisis, rising inflation and continuing US sanctions. It is likely that the winner will be a tough candidate and has close ties to the country’s top leader Ayatollah Khamenei. Ebrahim Raisi is the head of the judiciary and a religious conservative who has led repressions against popular protests and demands for reform. Many more moderate candidates have banned it. The elections come at a delicate time, with Iran hoping to return to the agreement that limited its nuclear program. Sophie Raworth presents BBC News Ten editor of the Middle East Jeremy Bowen.
