Much attention has been focused on the potential impact of the nuclear deal on Iran's – already very interventionist – foreign policy, however analysts say nothing can be clear until the Islamic Republic gets its political house in order, as the country prepares for three important upcoming elections.The implementation of the deal comes at a time when three important elections are to take place in Iran over the next two years.Analysts agree that the likely outcome of the Iranian elections is a balanced and pluralistic Iranian government.International Crisis Group's senior Iran analyst Ali Vaez argues that Khamenei has his own electoral objectives: a consensus within the Iranian system.According to Vakil, this domestic economic relief is what the nuclear deal was primarily aimed at, and its effects are expected to resonate not just within Iran, but across the region.The nuclear deal has brought Iran back to the diplomatic table, and as efforts intensify to bring an end to the war in Syria, the matter of diplomatic relations between Iran and the U.S. is at the heart of the discussion among political analysts.
