Mousavi details accusations of fraud in Iran vote
Defeated Iranian presidential contender Mir-Hossein Mousavi has released a new detailed report detailing what he calls 'irregularities' in the June 12 election, Press TV reported.
The report, prepared by the Committee for the Protection of Votes which is run by Mousavi's campaign office, accused the re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of abusing the national financial resources for his election campaign.
It added that many Cabinet members, senior executive managers and governor generals carried out activities in line with Ahmadinejad's re-election campaign.
The report alleged that the president had distributed cash among working class Iranians to win their votes, Ghalamnews released late Saturday.
Iran became the scene of opposition rallies after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared the winner of the 10th presidential election with nearly two-thirds of the vote.
Defeated candidates Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi rejected the result as fraudulent and demanded a re-run.
The Committee for the Protection of Votes, in its report, accused the Interior Ministry, tasked with organizing and holding elections, and the Guardian Council -- Iran's electoral watchdog -- of publicly endorsing the president before and during the campaign.
The report also charged that some commanders of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) had openly supported Ahmadinejad's candidacy and, along with the Basij, intervened in the voting process.
It questioned an alleged move to prevent representatives of the candidates from attending the vote constituencies, saying, "According to regulations, this is a crime."
The committee also asked why the Interior Ministry had printed 14 million more ballots than the total registered electorate of some 46 million.
At least 20 people were killed and many others were injured when some protests turned violent.
After the conclusion of a partial vote recount, the Guardian Council confirmed the result of the June 12 poll.
President Ahmadinejad is scheduled to be sworn in before Parliament between July 26 and August 19.
