After a big surprise in the Iranian presidential elections brought about by the "controversial" landslide victory by president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, defeated candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi is crying foul and now demands that the election be overturned.
Mir Hossein Mousavi, the former prime minister of the country, urges more protests from his supporters.
As reported by abscbnnews.com, Mousavi in a statement on his official website, Mousavi formally asked the Guardian Council, the legislative body in charge of elections to nullify the results.
Adding, "I urge you, Iranian nation, to continue your nationwide protests in a peaceful and legal way,"
Ahmadinejad, who got 63 percent of the vote, is widely criticized especially by youth groups because of his so-called "dictatorial" system and is now serving his second term of office.
The declaration that was held last Saturday shocked and stunned thousands of Mousavi supporters who were crying for change.
