Iranian President Rouhani to seek second term

What would hardliner Raisi mean for Iran and the world

Critics of the nuclear deal say that the supposed economic benefits of lifted sanctions have yet to trickle down to average Iranians, and palpable frustration in the streets has created a potential opening for conservative opponents.

"The Iranian nation will not stop half way, and will continue down its path".

Raisi also registered on Friday for the vote. He is also a member of the Assembly of Experts, an all-cleric body that will rule on Khamenei's succession.

The list of the applicants include Ex-President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former Iranian Vice-President Hamid Baghaei and several other high-ranking officials.

Raisi, appointed by the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is now the custodian and chairman of the Shrine of Shiite Imam Reza in the northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad.

While the president holds executive authority under Iran's constitution, considerable power remains in the hands of Iran's supreme leader, who is considered the country's highest political and religious authority.

"I don't think it's a referendum on foreign policy because that would be really reducing the whole process of Iran's presidential election", Shakdam said, adding that it is critically wrong to think of Iran's political system as binary.

Ebrahim Raisi announced his intention in a statement Sunday in which he said Iran is suffering from "structural chronic illness and incorrect managerial traditions".

William Hill trading director Terry Pattinson said: "Early signs are that we won in England but got stuffed in Scotland". He added: "I was injured on 9 March, I got a heavy fall on the novice chase and that was four weeks ago on Thursday".

The 56-year-old judge, who now runs the powerful charity-cum-business-empire Astan Qods Razavi, has emphasised his concern for the poor and is seen as a close ally of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Both Rouhani and Raisi on Friday avoided raising controversial issues, acquiescing to a longstanding demand by Khamenei who had urged a non-polarized election. The presidential candidates can enroll for presidential elections on April 11-16. Guardian Council will start vetting the candidates as of April 16.

"In every aspect that you consider, figures tell us that after the (nuclear deal), there is more space for movement and progress", he told reporters last week.

Since the deal went into effect, Iran has resumed selling oil and signed deals worth billions of dollars to replace its aging commercial airline inventory.

's stand is clear on Triple Talaq issue Rajnath Singh
The government termed the practices of triple talaq and polygamy as patriarchal notions that impeded women's role in society. Multiple letters written to the Prime Minister by Muslim women demand that triple talaq be ended.

"With the deal in jeopardy, the system will be in vital need of Rouhani's team of smiling diplomats and economic technocrats to shift the blame to the USA and keep Iran's economy afloat", said Iran analyst Ali Vaez of the International Crisis Group.
