The magazine said:News WeekAmerica today, Saturday 5 December, Khamenei transferred his powers to his son with mounting concerns about his deteriorating health, while Iran faces increasing tensions with Israel and the United States.
Iranian journalist Muhammad Majeed, in a tweet on “Twitter”, citing sources in the country, indicated that Khamenei handed over power to his son Mojtaba Khamenei, who oversees security and intelligence services in Iran.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was scheduled to meet with Khamenei on Friday, but the meeting was canceled due to Khamenei’s deteriorating health status, according to the Iranian journalist.
And in the event of Khamenei’s death, the “Iranian Revolutionary Guard” will take full control of the country so that the Assembly of Experts can choose a leader, according to a previous report by the newspaper.Financial Times” British.
Ali Khamenei was born in the Iranian city of Mashhad in 1939, was arrested in Iran, and then exiled from it several times between 1970 and 1979 because of his political activities.
He contributed to the arrival of Ayatollah Khomeini to power, and believed in the Wilayat al-Faqih, and was President of Iran from October 13, 1981, until August 3, 1989.
He did not reach the position of Supreme Leader until after a constitutional amendment allowing the mujtahid to assume leadership after it was the monopoly of jurists, and he held the position since July 4, 1989 after Khomeini.
The nominees to succeed Khamenei are limited to the death of his son Mojtaba, who is 51 years old, and who continues advanced religious studies in the religious seminary in Qom, which gives him the status of a high-ranking cleric, which is necessary to play the role of supreme leader, according to the “Financial Times”.
The British newspaper quoted one of his relatives as saying that Mojtaba “has a mentality similar to his father, and has an insight into political, military and economic issues,” and has “good relations with the Revolutionary Guard.”
Another potential candidate is Ibrahim Raisi, the hard-line chief of the judiciary who lost the 2017 presidential election to Rouhani.
