Below is a brief overview of what, according to the Iranian constitution, happens if a president is incapacitated or dies in office:

* According to article 131 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic, if a president dies during his term of office, the first vice-president takes over, with the confirmation of the supreme leader, who has the final say in all affairs of the state.

* A council composed of the first vice president, the president of Parliament and the head of the judiciary must organize the election of a new president within a maximum period of 50 days.
