Round 2

Just a quickie, without any links. The 24th of June 2005 could go down as a major turning point - if the hard-line conservative mayor of Tehran is elected President today, whether through fiddling of the ballot, or general indifference on the part of the voters. The reformist, Mostafa Moin, came fifth in the first round. Rafsanjani is now the reformist (!) Polls are said to be neck-and-neck.

Update (25 June ) : Mahmoud Ahmedinejad , 65%. Picture: NY Times.

(28 June ) : comments here.
