Tehran, June 14 (DPA) Iranian opposition leader Mir-Hossein Moussavi called on Iran’s Guardian Council Sunday to nullify the results of the presidential election.
Moussavi said in a statement on his website that he had forwarded an official request to the Guardian Council asking it to nullify the results.

Moussavi has accused President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the interior ministry of cheating in the voting process, and said that he was the real winner of the election.

The interior ministry Saturday announced that Ahmadinejad had won the election with over 62 percent of the vote.

Besides Moussavi, several opposition parties and groups have as well doubted the election results and even an influential clergy group has called on new elections.
