Either everyone is jumping the gun or it is true. I am sure that if this is the results there will be plenty of scandal tied to the election. The race was thought to be alot closer than what they said in this article, so foul play may become and issue.

I hope for the sake of stability in the Middle East that this election goes without a problem.

To add to the story rumors of voting fraud have already been surfacing. As to the validity of those claims only time will tell.

Take it for what its worth, but I was watching Fox and they had a guy on there who talked about how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Iran. I can't remember the details on it though.

Of course it could be a case of someone being a sore loser, but I wouldn't discount it simply because he is generally not liked in the western world.

If this is true,im surprised! i knew it would be a close one...but i didn't think he would win! anyhoo yay for Iran.Huge turnout from all walks of life and he won,good for him.Hope he tackles Irans main issues in his term..most iranians are worried about the economy and high unemployment rate,hopefully he gets to work! he did raise the employment rate in his time but its still wasn't good enough i think.Many villages/farmers were happy though as he provided electricity and water to them...hope this time he achieves more.

Congratulations to Ahmadinejad, he's one of the few more straightforward and honest governors in the world, even if he is not the 'supreme' leader.

Iran's economic troubles, I suspect is made worse by the embargoes against the country, and not the leader itself.

Neo-Cons may want Ahmadinejad to stay in power so they have an excuse to attack Iran, as the claim is, but once Iran is attacked, its curtains for the attackers as well so...

I agree and his election and "voters fraud" would not be as corrupted as the Bush 2004 win.

Actually he is way crazier. He has said he wants to destroy two countries that could turn his country into glass at the flick of a switch. That is crazy like going up to Mike Tyson in his heyday and saying something bad about his mother. It would be suicide.

If it is true it is against the usa wishes, as they would have had a big hand trying to get him out. Israel and usa would be in iran trying to cause problems and getting people to vote for someone else.

Most elections are like america they just make up the results, why do you think iran is different. In america it was proved that ron paul was conned.

Now the conflict starts. Stories now are being posted of a now contested election.

AP News source: Iran's Ahmadinejad, rival both claim election win


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's interior ministry said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took nearly 70 percent of the early votes counted, but his pro-reform rival countered that he was the clear victor and warned of possible fraud in the election. The dispute rose up even before polls closed early Saturday, heightening tensions across the capital where emotions have been running at a fever pitch. Mir Hossein Mousavi, the reformist candidate, suggested he might challenge the results.


Looks like this might get a little messy before the dust settles.
