Iran’s Council of Guardians, a committee of twelve mullahs who hold ultimate authority in that country, has announced that there will be a partial recount of the Presidential election results:
A spokesman said it was “ready to recount the disputed ballot boxes claimed by some candidates, in the presence of their representatives”.
“It is possible that there may be some changes in the tally after the recount,” Abbasali Kadkhodai, a spokesman, was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.
Yes, I’ll bet there will be. But no one expects the result, hailed as “divine” by the most senior cleric of all, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to change. Defeated candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi describes the proposed partial recount as inadequate.
The mullahs may want to bring in Al (“Let’s Count A Few More Votes”) Franken as an independent expert for the recount.
