The Iranian government announced on Saturday that Chief Justice Ebrahim Raisi (pictured) has been elected the new president.

Raisi received approximately 18 million votes out of 29 million. The country's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stated that the newly-elected official will lead the country well.

The confirmation comes after two of Raisi's opponents in the race conceded defeat and congratulated the judge on his victory.
