From the Swedish documentary “Dokument Utifrån – Spelet om Iran”. This clip shows how Rafsanjani more or less forced the mullahs to elect Khamenei as the supreme leader of Iran after Khomeini’s death. As seen in this clip, Khamenei himself opposed this idea. Rafsanjani is alive today, and plays a major role perhaps greater than the supreme leader.
