Estructura del poder en Irán

By Jordi Bou

June 28, 2024 - Iran organiza una elección presidencial de emergencia para hallar al sucesor del presidente Ebrahim Raisi, quien murió en un accidente de helicóptero el 19 de mayo.

Raisi and eight others, including Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, were killed in north-western Iran after their helicopter went down in a mountainous area. The government blamed bad weather and dense fog.

Candidates for the election can register from May 30 and individuals will be vetted by the Guardian Council, a 12-member body of clerics and jurists that administers elections.

While Iran’s President has significant influence over domestic policy and foreign affairs, his powers are limited by the constitution, which subordinates his role to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
