If reformists are leading the elections in Iran as all indicators show, it says a lot about the sentiments of the Iranians, keeping in mind that 55 million of Iran's population of 80 million are eligible to vote with an expected turnout of 70 percent.Furthermore, with 60 percent of the country's population under the age of 30, that means Iran's youth tip the balance in the vote, and this is not in any way attributed to the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal, which admittedly has opened the door for hope that Iran will introduce changes in its ties with the West, giving credence to the slogan of the coalition of Iran's reformists and moderates called the "List of Hope".
