Iran’s reformist President Hassan Rouhani has definitively won the nation’s presidential race, officially indicated by authority, battling off a test by principle rival Ebrahim Raisi.
With all of votes in Friday’s election numbered, Rouhani was re-chosen with 57 percent, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmanifazli said on Saturday.
“Of somewhere in the range of 41.2 million aggregate votes cast, Hassan Rouhani got 23.5 … also, won the decision,” Rahmanifazli said in comments conveyed live by state TV.
Raisi, Rouhani’s nearest rivals, got 15.8 million votes, he included.
A major turnout on Friday prompted the vote being stretched out by a few hours to manage long lines.
The economy is by all accounts the main test. Mr Rouhani, 68, marked an atomic arrangement between Iran, the US and different nations in 2015.
Global assents were lifted therefore, yet normal Iranians say they don’t feel the financial advantages in their day by day lives.
