Iran's Karoubi calls for election cancellation

TEHRAN, June 19 (Reuters) - Defeated presidential candidate Mehdi Karoubi called on Friday for Iran’s election result to be cancelled, hours after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei endorsed the victory of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

In an open letter which will be delivered to the country’s highest legislative body, the Guardian Council, on Saturday, Karoubi said: "Accept the Iranian nation’s will by cancelling the vote and guarantee the establishment’s survival."

The letter was published on Karoubi’s website.
