Ahmadinejad critic Larijani re-elected Iran speaker

Iran’s parliament has re-elected a conservative critic of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as speaker.

Ali Larijani will serve for another year after beating Gholam Ali Haddad Adel by 177 votes to 89 in the Majlis.

Both are close to the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, but Mr Haddad Adel wanted a less confrontational approach with the president.

Conservative opponents of Mr Ahmadinejad won a majority in the recent parliamentary elections.
