Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline cleric, is Iran’s new President. With the election of Raisi, the Islamic Republic’s ruling clergy have tightened their grip on all institutions of power, the military, Parliament, the judiciary & the presidency. In Iran’s unique political system, effectively controlled by the Supreme Leader, Presidents, who run the day-to-day affairs, have an important role to play. In the past, the country had seen tensions between moderate/reformist Presidents and the Supreme Leader. While the reformists, a powerful constituency, have pushed for gradual reforms by rallying behind leaders like Mohammad Khatami and Hassan Rouhani, the conservatives always pushed back. In this tussle for power, Raisi has been the popular face of the establishment for years.
