Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “‘Iran first’: President-elect Raisi sets out his priorities” – below is their description.
Iran’s president-elect says he will put the needs of his people first.
Former Chief Justice Ebrahim Raisi secured victory during the weekend in an election with an historic-low turnout.
Raisi has used his first speech to the nation to set the tone for the next four years, and indicated how he plans to fix the economy and to interact with foreign powers.
He has made sweeping promises ranging from fighting corruption to protecting Iran’s interests in negotiations with the West. When he takes office in August, Iran will see if he can deliver on those promises.

In This Story: Iran
Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.
Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
