Leader of Islamic Ummah Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei to authorize Rouhani to take the office
The swearing-in ceremony for President Rouhani will be held in the parliament on August 5.
After taking the oath of office at an open session of the parliament -to be attended by foreign guests- President Rouhani will have two weeks to submit his new cabinet to the parliament for a vote of confidence.
According to Tasnim, the lawmakers will then assess the programs of the proposed ministerial picks for a week, before an open session for the vote of confidence.
In Iran’s presidential election on May 19, Rouhani garnered 23,549,616 votes from a total of 41,220,131 ballots. The runner-up, Ebrahim Raisi, secured 38.5% of the votes.
