Mousavi identifies ‘achievement’ in Iran election

Amid ongoing opposition to Iran’s disputed election,…Mousavi says the vote and its ‘bitter aftermath’ have led to a “treasured achievement” for the nation. “There is a treasured achievement in the [post-vote] events,” said Mousavi…The former prime minister, speaking to a group of youth on Tuesday, said the election had brought to surface “grave and complicated crises” facing the establishment 30 years after the Islamic Revolution. “These problems would not have been unveiled, if it weren’t for the election,” said Mousavi, whose credentials are well-known since the 1979 revolution. “This is a great achievement.” The defeated candidate went on to say that the nation now fully feels the problems that were raised during the course of the election, Ghalam News reported. On the issue of protesters who face trial on charges of plotting to topple the government, Mousavi said that arrests of opposition figures and activists would not stop the movement opposing Ahmadinejad’s re-election. “I noticed the birth of a strong national feeling during the course of the election… which has united different groups in the society,” he said. “Some thought that by arresting several people who they believe are protest leaders, the whole story will be finished. But the fact is that this movement has stayed alive, showing that the arrests will not be effective.”.
