Top Clerical Council in Iran Rejects Plea to Annul Vote

Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaei, the spokesman for the Guardian Council, declared: “If a major breach occurs in an election, the Guardian Council may annul the votes that come out of a particular affected ballot box, polling station, district, or city.”“Fortunately, in the recent presidential election we found no witness of major fraud or breach in the election,” he said.“Therefore, there is no possibility of an annulment taking place.” He was speaking late on Monday in Tehran and his remarks were posted early Tuesday, Tehran time.The Guardian Council — a 12-member panel of clerics entrusted with overseeing and validating elections —has until Wednesday to certify the election as valid. The spokesman’s remarks seem to make that certification even more of a certainty. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, pronounced the vote fair in a major sermon last Friday.
