AlJazeeraEnglish | What role does the president play in Iran? | Inside Story ...

Iran is gearing up for a presidential election on June the 28th. It's earlier than expected, following the death of President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash in May. Six candidates have been approved to run. All are long-serving members of Iran's political establishment. The winner will have to contend with a struggling economy and ongoing challenge of American sanctions. So how much choice does this field of candidates represent? And with voter turnout sinking to all-time lows, will Iranians be inspired to cast their votes now? Presenter: Laura Kyle Guests Abas Aslani, senior research fellow at the Tehran-based think tank Centre for Middle East Strategic Studies. Sanam Vakil, director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House. Mehran Kamrava, Professor of Government at Georgetown University in Qatar and Director of Iranian Studies Unit at the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies.
