Hardliner Ebrahim Raisi certain to win Iran's presidential election Updated: 2021-06-19 16:08:18 KST

Over in Iran, hardline cleric and judge Ebrahim Raisi( ) appears to have won the presidential election with a majority of votes.
According to Iranian state television on Saturday, the cleric secured over 17-million votes.
Observers say his victory may complicate any talks with the West, as he has been critical of the 2015 nuclear accord.
But he did tell voters during his campaign that he would preserve the deal.
Raisi was sanctioned in 2019 by the former Trump administration for his role in a severe crackdown a decade ago on protestors alleging vote fraud.
