Iran announces interim president after Raisi’s death


 The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has declared Vice President Mohammad Mokhber the country’s acting president, effective immediately.

 

Mokhber will remain interim president until then. “We will follow the path of Raisi in doing the duties entrusted without any disruptions,” he was quoted as saying by state media, according to Aljazeera.

 

The development comes barely 24 hours after President Ebrahim Raisi alongside his Minister of Foreign Affairs died in a helicopter crash.

 

Iran held an emergency meeting on Monday.

 

Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has already condoled Iranian government over Raisi’s death.
