On June 18, Iranians cast their votes to choose the successor of President Hassan Rouhani, who couldn’t run again due to term limits. The run-up to the elections has been shaped by the massive exclusion of moderate and reformist candidates, which turned ultra-conservative Ebrahim Raisi into the frontrunner for the presidential race. Many Iranians were outraged and considered boycotting the elections in protest. We will take a closer look at the election results and the consequences these elections will have for Iran, the state of diplomacy on the nuclear deal, and the transatlantic agenda for relations with Iran.
How Can and Will the Transatlantic Community React?
