Who will be the next president of Iran after Raisi’s death?

The death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash raises the immediate question of who will succeed him in leading the government. Not only was Raisi expected to succeed the 85-year-old Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, but his death also has implications for the future of one of the most powerful positions in the Middle East.

What is the difference between Supreme Leader and President?

The Supreme Leader, also known in Shia Islamic theology as the Velayat-e Faqih, is the ultimate ruler in Iran and is responsible for making all major decisions regarding the state. The Supreme Leader, a position established after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, is also head of state and commander-in-chief.
