The fight for power will now begin in Iran! Is Supreme Leader Khamenei's son behind Ibrahim Raisi's helicopter crash?

Even as the world joins in mourning the sudden death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, the most relevant question is not who will be the next President, but who will be the next Ayatollah or Supreme Leader of Iran. Raisi, a hardliner who previously headed the country's judiciary, was seen as a disciple of Khamenei and some analysts said he could replace the 85-year-old leader after Khamenei's death or resignation.

The fight for power will increase after Raisi's death

President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister and others were found dead at the crash site in a helicopter crash caused by bad weather in the mountainous region of northwest Iran. The country's government media gave this information. EC was traveling in Iran's East Azerbaijan province at the time of the accident. He told that among those whose bodies were found along with Raisi in this accident, Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian (60) is also included. There is already a provision in the Constitution of Iran as to who will become the interim President of the country if the incumbent dies. The First Vice President automatically assumes temporary leadership and, together with the head of the judiciary and the Speaker of Parliament, calls a new presidential election within 50 days. Mohammad Mokhbar, who held the post of First Vice President, will be the temporary President of the country for the time being.

Who is the new President Mokhbar?

Mohammad Mokhbar has served on key positions in the government. He has especially played a big role in 'Bonyaad' or charitable organizations. These organizations were fueled by assets confiscated after Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution. These also included properties that previously belonged to the Shah of Iran or his government. Mokhbar took charge of a charitable foundation linked to the late Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. This organization is known as 'Execution of the Orders of Imam Khomeini' (EIKO).

the biggest question

Of course the biggest question is who will be the next supreme leader as Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is already 85 years old and has led the country for 30 years. Earlier it was believed that President Ibrahim Raisi was in line to succeed him but his sudden death has brought a sudden change in the mathematics. The consequences are not limited to Iran's domestic affairs, but are also likely to impact Iran's stature beyond its borders, especially in such volatile times. However, Raisi's departure has actually increased the odds for Khamenei's son Mojtaba, who was already considered one of the top contenders in some circles. Mojtaba Khamenei, born on September 8, 1969 in Mashhad, is an important figure in Iranian politics and the second eldest son of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Mojtaba's upbringing and career are closely linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran's clerical establishment. He joined the IRGC at a young age and participated in the Iran–Iraq War during the 1980s. After the war, he pursued religious studies in Qom, a major center of Shia scholarship, under the guidance of prominent conservative clerics.
