In the News – Post-Election Protests in Iran

Week of June 29, 2009

News Item: Mass protests have taken place in Iran since the June 12th presidential election in which incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quickly determined the winner of over 62 percent of the vote by the Interior Ministry. This came as a shock to many who believed that one of the opposition candidates, Mir-Hossein Mousavi, would become the new president given his strong lead in the polls running up to election day. Supporters of Mousavi have since questioned the results and voiced concern over the possibility of vote-tampering.
