Iran's Mousavi, Karoubi reject some vote recount

PanARMENIAN.Net - Defeated Iranian presidential candidate Mirhossein Mousavi on Saturday rejected authorities' proposals for a recount of some votes from this month's election and repeated his demand the entire ballot be annulled.

Iran's top legislative body, the Guardian Council, had offered to recount 10 percent of ballot boxes from the June 12 vote in the presence of senior officials representing the government and opposition.

"This kind of recount will not remove ambiguities...There is no other way but annulment of the vote...Some members of this committee are not impartial," Mousavi said in a statement posted on his website.

Another beaten candidate, pro-reform cleric Mehdi Karoubi, also rejected the recount offer in a statement on his site, Reuters reported.
