Rafsanjani Wins

Former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who already heads the Expediency Council, has been elected head of Iran's Assembly of Experts. The main importance of that body is to elect the surpreme leader, currently Ayatollah Ali Khamene'i. I strongly suspect Rafsanjani wants that job for himself after Khamene'i dies.
