An informed source says defeated presidential candidate Mohsen Rezaei has gathered evidence supporting his claim of having won more than 900,000 votes in Friday's poll, a report says.

"Mohsen Rezaei, until yesterday afternoon, found evidence that proves at least 900,000 Iranians -- based on their national ID cards -- voted for [him]," Tabnak quoted an informed source as saying, Press TV reported.

According to figures released by the Interior Ministry, Rezaei only received 681,851 votes.

The election, which saw the incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared as victor by a landslide, has been rejected by main rival Mir-Hossein Moussavi as fraudulent.
