Masoud Pezeshkian’s victory in Iran’s presidential election, with about 54 percent of the vote in the second round, has boosted the hopes of reformists in Iran after years of conservative and hardline conservative dominance in the presidency.

Pezeshkian, who is known for his openness to the West, stressed in his first statement since his victory was announced that he would “extend a hand of friendship to everyone.”

“We will extend a hand of friendship to everyone, we are all the people of this country. We must seek help from everyone for the country’s progress,” Bezkechian told state television.

Who is Masoud Pezeshkian who managed to defeat his rival candidates?
