As Iran marked the 40th anniversary of its Islamic revolution, a white-turban Shiite priest directed at a memorial power to President Hassan Rouhani, a companion, with this sign: “You who are the cause of inflation, we hope you won” t last until spring. “With much criticism of his collapsing nuclear agreements and renewed tensions with the United States, the relatively moderate Rouhani stands against anger from clergy, hard forces, and an ever-growing, confused public now threatening their position.

Iranian presidents usually see their popularity eroded during his other four years but analysts say Rouhani is particularly vulnerable because of the economic crisis that attacks the country’s national currency, which has damaged ordinary Iranians and emboldened critics to openly call for his concern.

Although such a move has only happened once in the Islamic Republic’s four decades, the popular dissatisfaction on the streets of Iran could now be possible.

“I don’t care who is in the presidential palace: a clergyman, a general, or someone else,” said Qassim Abhari, who sells hats and socks on the Tehran streets. “We need someone who creates jobs and drives the brake pedal heavily on rising prices. “

It has been a long fall for Rouhani, who secured the nuclear power in 201

5 after two years in the office and won the Iranian praise, which flooded the streets to celebrate it. Under the agreement, Iran limited its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the suspension of economic sanctions.

But the benefits of the agreement never reached much of the Iranian public. Although President Donald Trump drew America from the May agreement, the uncertainty over his future caused the riot to crater and burned sporadic, nationwide protests.

Now the rial falls again to 133,000 to $ 1. It had been $ 32,000 at the time of the deal. On social media hard packs are shared with price lists showing food staples such as beans, rice and tomato paste rising up to 238 percent.

Hard rocks stopped Parliament’s speaker Ali Larijani, an ally of Rouhani, from addressing a crowd in Karaj, just 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Tehran. Rouhani Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who was usually gathered, appeared visibly frustrated at a new security conference in Munich.

Hassan Abbasi, a retired general secretary of Iran’s fierce revolutionary guard who answers senior leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei a speech after Karaj said he believed people would spit on Rouhani, Larijani and Zarif on the streets across the nuclear dealership when they left the office. He said they “shiver” over the deal’s case.

“Mr Hassan Rouhani, Zarif and Mr. Larijani, go to hell,” said Abbasi to applause.

Tension between hardband and moderate forces within Iran is nothing new. The political structure of the Islamic Republic confuses who drives power between paramilitary forces in the guard and the country’s civilian government. Reformist President Mohammad Khatami faced similar pressures in the second half, which gave way to the hard-line president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

But Khatami did not face the same abrasive financial pressure or an American president as Donald Trump, whose administration has taken a maximalist approach to pushing Tehran. Analysts say that only further weak Rouhani’s hand.

“You, Mr President, have only 15 to 20 percent of power in the Iranian government,” said the pro-Rouhani daily Jomhouri Eslami in a January editorial. “You can’t run the country with this amount of power and be responsible for all its difficulties and problems.”

Rouhani himself seemed to acknowledge the pressure he encountered during a visit to the Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas on Monday. [19659003] “Presidential elections are held every four years,” he said. “When people voted for a particular point of view, everyone should go after it and support it”.
