Iran's President-Elect Carries Reform Hopes - 16 Jun 2013
Images relating to Iran’s presidential election. Iran's new president, a moderate cleric known for his conciliatory nuclear talks
with world powers, will take office carrying the hopes of reformists seeking less repression of social freedoms and a more pragmatic foreign policy. Hassan Rohani is someone world powers are likely to welcome as the successor to hardline populist incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, hoping he might pursue peaceful ways out of an increasingly tense standoff with Iran over its nuclear activity.

To the surprise of many, Rohani polled just over 50 percent of the votes cast in Friday's election, according to the interior
ministry, good enough for a landslide first-round victory over conservatives close to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iranians pose for pictures as they wait to vote during the Iranian presidential election at a Shi'ite mosque in Baghdad's Kadhimiya district, June 14, 2013. Millions of Iranians voted to choose a new president on Friday, urged by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to turn out in force to discredit suggestions by arch foe the United States that the election would be unfair. The country's 50 million eligible voters have a choice between six candidates to replace incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but none is seen as challenging the Islamic Republic's 34-year-old system of clerical rule.
