Iran: Election Results Final

Might this ignite a new wave of protests in Iran? The Guardian Council announced its “final decision” on Monday, declaring that the election results giving Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a landslide victory were correct. "The secretary of the Guardian Council in a letter to the interior minister announced the final decision of the council . . . and declares the approval of the accuracy of the results of . . . the presidential election," Iran's state television and radio network reported. According to The Washington Post, “A last attempt by the Guardian Council bring Mousavi before the committee on Monday also failed for unspecified reasons.”
