TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran’s moderate defeated candidate Mehdi Karoubi rejected Wednesday the June 12 presidential election result and said the new government was “illegitimate,” his website reported.
“I do not accept the result and therefore consider as illegitimate the new government. Because of the irregularities, the vote should be annulled,” Karoubi said.
