Ebrahim Raisi is confirmed as the President of Iran

Raisi will replace Hasan Ruhani in this.

The inauguration ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, when Raisi will take the oath of office as president.

Ultra-conservative cleric Ebrahim Raisi won the June presidential election with almost 62% of the vote.

Five candidates ran in the election, including only one reformer, former central bank president Abdolnaser Hemmati.

Raisi is expected to present the composition of the new government soon.

Haman is the head of state of Iran, he is also the army chief and the country’s highest spiritual leader.

Raisi used to work as a prosecutor and is believed to be responsible for the arrest and punishment of many political dissidents.

Although little is known about his political views, in recent years Raisi has sharply criticized Ruhani’s moderate course, including the 2015 nuclear deal with the world’s powers.
