Irão: Khamenei pode ser destituido?

Religious leaders are considering an alternative to the supreme leader structure after at least 13 people were killed in the latest unrest to shake Tehran and family members of former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, were arrested amid calls by former President Mohammad Khatami for the release of all protesters.

Iran's religious clerics in Qom and members of the Assembly of Experts, headed by Ayatollah Rafsanjani, are mulling the formation of an alternative collective leadership to replace that of the supreme leader, sources in Qom told Al Arabiya on condition of anonymity.
A "Assembleia dos Sábios" é um dos vários orgãos do poder iraniano: nomeadamente, escolhe e pode destituir o "Lider Supremo" (cujo mandato, à partida, é ilimitado).
