On Iran President Rouhani’s re-election

Iranian president Rouhani retained the office after a resounding victory in the election securing 57% votes, highest in the history of Iran’s presidential elections. This result is envisaged to be in trend with French presidential election where reformist candidate won against radical and more inward political doctrine.

In his first term, Rouhani trod rather warily, avoiding upsetting the conservative entities. But moving forward, he needs to take audacious decisions pertaining civil liberties, supporting reformists, alleviating unemployment to deliver on his promise of a modern Iran which is connected to the whole world. Though it’s not possible to make sudden radical changes in the current establishment, a more gradual but resolute approach can better serve the purpose given the popular support.
