President Rouhani Says Iranian Nation Winner of Polls

President Rouhani Says Iranian Nation Winner of Polls

Chairman of the Russian Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Committee for Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev considers the re-election of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to be positive both for the country, for the whole world, and particularly for Russia.

The election result reflects the political coming-of-age of urban Iranians who voted in high numbers to thwart the candidacy of Raisi, whom they viewed as a second coming of the Holocaust-denying former President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Hard-liners probably will challenge Rouhani in the country's parliament, especially over social issues or any measure that appears to be accepting or promoting Western culture. And this is thought to have helped Mr Rouhani, who received close to 23 million votes out of the 40 million that were cast.

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad lauded his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani today on his election victory and vowed to continue cooperating with Tehran, a key Damascus supporter.

As for the future of relations between Tehran and Washington, Parsi says "President Rouhani's reelection also creates an opportunity for the Trump administration to chose diplomacy over war with Iran". The latest election tallies released by the Interior Ministry showed Rouhani with a commanding lead of 59 per cent, with 38.9 million votes counted.

But the deal has serious opponents in the USA, where President Donald Trump and the Congress are reviewing their options.




He would not comment on his expectations following the outcome of Friday's election in Iran, only saying that "if Rouhani wanted to change Iran's relationship with the rest of the world those are the things he could do". Russian engineers previous year began expanding Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant.

He defeated Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline cleric and acolyte of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power in Iran's complex, hybrid system of theocratic and republican elements.

Hashemitaba was among the first to predict an outright win for Rouhani as he offered his congratulations Saturday morning.

Nonetheless, Rouhani┬┤s expansion of healthcare and support for agricultural producers were seen as boosting his support even in more conservative rural areas.

Today, the world knows well that the Iranian nation is on a civilized course with the worldwide community. And on Saturday, the Iranian people gave the more cosmopolitan candidate a decisive victory.
