Iran

Iran's next president may be a hardline cleric who succeeds the Supreme Leader

  • Presidential election favourite hardline cleric Raisi (60) is also a potential successor to Supreme Leader Khamenei (82)

  • Candidates are approved by unelected institutions and hardliners heavily outscore reformists in published opinion polls

  • Election likely does not affect negotiations on or ultimate outcome of Iran Nuclear Deal, but clears away a distraction
