Kargozaran: No to Election Results

Kargozaran Sazandegi (“Executives of Construction”) Party of Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, former president of Iran and the current chairman of the Assembly of Experts today joined the Majma-eyeh Modaressin of Qom and declared the recent presidential election invalid.

"We declare that the result is unacceptable due to the unhealthy voting process, massive electoral fraud and the siding of the majority of the Guardian Council with a specific candidate," said the statement posted by the party on its website today.

The party’s defiant declaration ran counter to the forceful declaration by IRGC Gen. Yadollah Javani that that "no one is impartial" in the dispute over the election.

"There are two currents -- those who defend and support the revolution and the establishment, and those who are trying to topple it," Gen. Yadollah Javani said on Sunday [IRNA].

IRGC declared yesterday that it has taken over the security apparatus of the regime, adding to its enormous economic and political power, and effectively militarizing the regime.
