Mousavi insists results of election should be nullified
Iran's reformist presidential candidate has rejected a partial recount of the recent election and stated the disputed results should be nullified. In a statement on a Mir Hussein Mousavi-affiliated Web site Sunday, he also called for independent arbiters in the dispute. Mousavi alleges victory was stolen from him through fraud.
Iran's top electoral body, the powerful 12-member Guardian Council, has proposed recounting 10 percent of the votes in the June 12 election. On Friday, the council offered to bring in six more political figures to oversee a partial recount, the AP reported.
However, Mousavi reiterated his demand for nullification as "the most suitable solution to restore public confidence."
