Iran votes in head-to between diplomacy and resistance

Iranian voters will decide the fate of moderate President Hassan Rouhani and his policy of engagement with the West on Friday as he goes head-to-head with hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi. While Iranians largely welcomed the reduced tensions with the West, the ongoing economic slump has taken a toll on morale. But many voters, particularly wealthier urbanites, are still attracted to Rouhani’s promise of greater social freedoms.
