Discussion: Iran elections

As the Iran elections for parliament and its clerical body has ended, we take a look at the major issues at stake. What would be the significance for President Rouhani and his backing forces within the country’s moderate and reformist camps? And what lies ahead for Rouhani, who has put himself up for re-election in 2017? The elections come only months after the lifting of sanctions that have pushed the country into a deep recession, with a 25 percent unemployment rate. Are predictions of an economic boom too optimistic? And how will business ties to foreign countries shape Iran’s diplomatic relations, for example with China and Russia? Join us for a lively discussion about Iran’s future.
