Breaking down the 2021 presidential race in Iran

published 1 month ago by France 24

This week we are bringing you a special edition of the programme, where we will be delving into the Iranian election. It's been a rocky lead-up that has left many voters inside the Islamic Republic disillusioned as the Guardian Council has whittled down some 600 candidates to just over a handful. In doing so, the council eliminated a number of prominent Reformists, who might have brought some rivalry to the race. We will be joined by Ali Vaez, who is the Crisis Group's Iran Project Director.
