On Friday, 14 June 2013, the eleventh Iranian President election is scheduled. The incumbent President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is limited to two terms under the current Iranian constitution and cannot participate in the election. This may open the opportunity for a new more reformist president (albeit this seems rather unlikely). Professor Ali Ansari, Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) Senior Associate Fellow and founding director of the Institute for Iranian Studies at St. Andrews University in Scotland, gives a short insight into the Iranian election procedure and present some of the possible presidential candidates.
