INU - President Hassan Rouhani won his second term last month. He was up against Ebrahim Raisi (the candidate preferred by Supreme Leader Khamenei).

By INU Staff

INU - On Wednesday, Reuters published a report explaining that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is facing serious domestic pressure over human rights following the victory of his reelection campaign on May 19. Previous reports had indicated that Rouhani re-branded himself as a reformist in the final weeks of the campaign, apparently as part of a bid to overcome voter apathy among moderates and reformists. Around the time of his election to a first term in office in 2013, he was regarded by some outside observers as a moderate, but he subsequently lost much of his initial support after failing to follow through on reform-minded campaign promises.
