Iran gets a new president

Hassan Rouhani has been elected as President of Iran. He will take over from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on August 3rd.
Cleric and former nuclear negotiator Hassan Rohani enjoys the support of many liberal-minded Iranians and moderates and reformists in his bid to become president of the Islamic Republic. Rohani’s credentials include membership in the Assembly of Experts and Expediency Council and Supreme National Security Council.

His track record proves his talent for working effectively with various factions, and, more than other candidates, his attitude – at age 64 – for change, both in Iran’s internal policy and internationally.

His degrees in law include a doctorate from Scotland’s Glasgow Caledonian University.
