Mousavi Turns Down Poll Recount Offer

View Larger Map

Sky News... The loser of the disputed presidential elections in Iran has turned down an offer to have part of the vote recounted.

Iran's top legislative body, the Guardian Council, proposed to recount 10% of ballot boxes from the June 12 vote.

The second count would have been conducted with senior officials from both parties in attendance.

But Mirhossein Mousavi repeated his demand that the entire ballot should be annulled.

"This kind of recount will not remove ambiguities," Mr Mousavi said in a statement on his website.

"There is no other way but annulment of the vote... Some members of this committee are not impartial."
