Experts believe that Iran’s political situation will not change significantly after Raisi’s death.
Iran\’s Constitutional Guardian Council announced on Monday that Mukhbel had assumed the duties of president in accordance with the provisions of the constitution and with the approval of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Iran\’s constitution stipulates that if the president dies during his term, the first vice president will assume the powers and duties of the president while a committee consisting of the speaker of the house, the director of justice and the first vice president will arrange for the election of a new president within 50 days.
Immediately after Leahy\’s incident on Sunday, Mukhbel convened an emergency cabinet meeting and said that the cabinet would continue to follow Leahy\’s line and there would be no problems in national governance.
According to \”Xinhua News Agency\”, Liu Zhongmin, a professor at the Institute of Middle East Studies at Shanghai International Studies University, said that Iran\’s power succession system is perfect and the death of the president will not cause the country to fall into chaos.
In addition, judging from Iran\’s power structure, the president is not the country\’s supreme leader. There is a supreme leader above him.
After Raisi\’s death, Khamini said that the Iranian people need not worry that the country and government work will not be affected.
Liu Zhongmin said Khamini has been able to achieve a balance between different political factions and lead the country through crises many times since he became supreme leader in 1989.
Ali Vaez, Iran Program Director of the International Crisis Research Organization, also pointed out that Khamini and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps still maintain the absolute say in foreign strategic decision-making, so Iran’s foreign policy will not change significantly.
