The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has praised outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the administration’s cabinet members for their efforts.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei criticized measures to underestimate the efforts of the government, saying the Iranian nation must be notified of the administration’s services.
“Some even deny the administration’s concrete actions, but what matters is that the efforts and attempts be expressed and recorded in the country’s public scene,” Imam Khamenei stated.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei also referred to some of the outstanding characteristics of the outgoing administration such as the speedy implementation of huge projects.
President Ahmadinejad will be succeeded by President-elect Hassan Rohani.
Rohani won 50.7 percent of the vote to secure an outright victory.
Rohani currently represents Imam Khamenei in the Supreme National Security Council, and is a member of the Expediency Council and the Assembly of Experts. He is also director of the Expediency Council’s Center for Strategic Research.
