It would seem that Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has reversed his earlier decree that the Iranian Presidential election result was fair(ly rigged) and has ordered an investigation into the disputed re-election of President Ahmadinejad.
Khamenei, who has the final say on such matters, had described the result as fair and urged the country to unite behind Mr Ahmadinejad. Today it emerged, however, that he had met the defeated opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi last night and ordered the powerful Guardians Council to examine his allegations of vote-rigging.
Ahmadinejad is Khamenei’s placeman so it is extremely unlikely that the result will be overturned. I somehow doubt that the Guardian Council will find any “irregularities”... After all the powers that be in Iran are hardly going to air their own dirty laundry.
