“The first elections in Iran since the nationwide anti-government protests of 2022 take place on Friday. There will be two separate polls: one for members of parliament and the other for members of the Assembly of Experts, who are responsible for appointing, dismissing, and overseeing Iran's Supreme Leader, the country's most powerful figure and commander-in-chief. The elections are seen as a crucial test for assessing the legitimacy of the Islamic Republic's regime.” (Via BBC News)
