Hardline cleric Raisi to be sworn in as Iran’s president

Hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi will be sworn in as Iran’s president on Thursday, with the Islamic Republic’s clerical rulers face growing crises at home and abroad.

Iranian television said Raisi, 60, would be inaugurated later on Thursday, two days after winning the formal endorsement of the country’s supreme leader to take office following his victory in an election in June.
