Ahmadinejad losing ground in Iran power struggle, analysts say

(CNN) — Iran’s vital oil industry appears to be the latest front in a power struggle between President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei — a fight that overseas analysts say the colorful president appears to be losing.

Ahmadinejad is trying to retain control of Iran’s Oil Ministry despite a ruling by the country’s top judicial body that he can’t serve as its acting chief. It’s the latest in a series of unusually public squabbles between Ahmadinejad and allies of Khamenei, the Islamic republic’s clerical leader, in recent weeks.
