THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH HAS TRADITIONALLY TAKEN THE LEAD IN HANDLING THE ECONOMY. BUT NUCLEAR EFFORTS, DEFENSE AND FOREIGN AFFAIRS REMAIN PRIMARILY IN THE HANDS OF THE RULING CLERICS AND THE REVOLUTIONARY GUARD.

SOUNDBITE (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister:

we in Israel have no illusions.

SOUNDBITE (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister:

"Iran will be judged by its actions. If Iran continues to insist on developing its nuclear weapons program, the end result must be made clear; one way or another it will be stopped."

ROWHANI WON A SURPRISE VICTORY IN FRIDAY'S ELECTION. HE FACES MAJOR CHALLENGES INCLUDING 30 PERCENT INFLATION. THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS 14 PERCENT--LINKED TO WESTERN SANCTIONS.
