Iran's leader favors vote re-count in presence of candidates representatives
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that vote re-count in case of need must be carried out in the presence of representatives of the presidential candidates, Iran's state television reported, Xinhua reported.
"Any re-count must be done in the presence of representatives of the presidential candidates," Khamenei said, "so that everyone will be assured."
He said that all the Iranian people who took part in the presidential election have expressed their support for the Islamic regime, no matter which candidate they preferred.
Unrest are carried out by ill-wishers not supporters of candidates, he said, calling on candidates to show clear opposition to such actions.
Iran's Guardian Council said earlier on Tuesday that it is ready to re-count the disputed polling boxes in last week's presidential election if it finds irregularities in the vote count.
