Iran’s new president has been announced.
According to unofficial results, conservative candidate İbrahim Reisi, Head of the Judiciary, won the 13th Presidential elections and became the 8th President of the country.

President Hasan Rouhani also stated in his statement that the president elected by the people was determined and that he would hand over the task to him after 45 days.
WHO IS ABRAHIM RESI?
Iran’s new Presidential Chief is cited as the likely successor to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
A hardline judge, he was one of four judges who signed the death warrant for thousands of regime opponents in the ’80s.
He is recognized as the name behind the mass execution to members of the People’s Mujahideen Organization in 1988.
Reisi, who draws the public’s attention with his economic promises and promises to fight corruption, defends the resistance economy.
His chief had lost the election in 2017, in which he ran against Hassan Rouhani.
