Raisi wins almost 18 million of the nearly 29 million ballots cast, according to Interior Minister Rahmani Fazli. Many reform-minded Iranians had refused to take part in an election widely seen as a foregone conclusion. Overall voter turnout was only 48.8% - the lowest since the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979.

November 2023 - Raisi attends a summit in Saudi Arabia where Arab and Muslim leaders decry Israeli "war crimes" in Gaza.
