    Religious leader of Iran since 1989.Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei born 17 July 1939 is the Supreme Leader of Iran and the figurative head of the Muslim conservative establishment in Iran and Twelver Shia Marja. In 2010, Forbes selected him 26th in the list of 'World's Most Powerful People'.He was President of Iran from 1981 to 1989, and has been Supreme Leader of Iran since June 1989 when the Assembly of Experts appointed him to succeed Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. He has been described as one of only three people having "important influence" on the Islamic Republic of Iran (the other two being the founder of the republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and the president of Iran for much of the 1990s, Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani). So far, the biggest challenge to his leadership has been the mass protests following the June 2009 presidential elections. Khamenei, however, continued to strongly support Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, his policies and re-election. Khamenei was the victim of an attack aimed to assassinate him in June 1981 that paralyzed his right arm.

    Ali Hosseini Khamenei (Persian: علی حسینی خامنه‌ای‎ pronounced  ( listen); born 17 July 1939) is the second and current Supreme Leader of Iran and a Shia Cleric. Ali Khamenei succeeded Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian Revolution, after Khomeini''s death, being elected as the new Supreme Leader by the Assembly of Experts on 4 June 1989. His tenure as Supreme Leader has been marked by several major protests in Iran, such as Iran student protests, July 1999, 2009–10 Iranian election protests and 2011–12 Iranian protests. He had also served as the President of Iran from 1981 to 1989. In 2012, Forbes selected him 21st in the list of The World''s Most Powerful People.

    As the head of state, Khamenei is considered the most powerful political authority in Iran. Khamenei was the victim of an attempted assassination in June 1981 that paralysed his right arm. According to his official website, Khamenei was arrested six times before being sent to exile for three years during Mohammad Reza Pahlavi''s reign.
