Iran - The Waiting Game

Samuel Aranda

Once again, a moderate has been elected to the presidency in Iran. And once again, many Iranians are waiting for substantial changes to materialise.~~Samuel Aranda goes on a journey through Iran at a time of both stagnation and change. While crowds took to the streets to mark the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, many are also eager for change after the 2013 election of moderate President Hassan Rouhani. Rouhani has vowed to revitalise the faltering economy, reset Iran’s relationship with the West, improve access to information and increase personal freedoms and women’s rights.  For now Iranians will have to wait and see.
