That democracy actually works in Iran might be considered an outrageous claim of apologetic defenders of the regime in Tehran. But Iranians are clever. This time, four years after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s questionable re-election(I have never seen convincing data which ultimately would prove that he had stolen the election, though) it seems so that “moderate” “reformist” Hassan Rouhani, who had been leading in the latest polls at not more than 23.3%, may have won the presidential election in a landslide victory already.
The Ministry of Interior is much more hesitant in reporting results this time, for obvious reasons. It seems so that a decision has to be made whether a second round on Friday next week is needed or not.
