Ahmadinejad's victory is a sham. The result was rigged and quite ineptly rigged at that. Ahmadinejad remained popular among his core voters (rural dwellers and the urban poor) despite high unemployment and inflation and a slim victory in the low 50s was very possible. The result given shows Ayatollah Khamenei's (the real leader) contempt for the for those who wish to see at least some degree of liberalisation in Iran.
My next post will say far more about Iran than I could ever say.
