In what has become a referendum on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s leadership, Iranians will head to the polls on June 12 for the Iranian presidential election.

As the elections approach, President Obama says that he is prepared to work with Iran, but that the nation must not pursue nuclear weapons. The outcome will have major implications for U.S.-Iran relations.

To examine the outlook for and implications of Iran’s elections, Brookings expert Suzanne Maloney and Senior Politico Editor Fred Barbash took questions in this week’s edition of the Scouting Report, Wednesday, June 10 at 12:30 PM.
