Iran opposition calls for holding a free election


The political party of Iranian opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi called on Sunday for the holding of a free election and permission to stage demonstrations, its website said.

The Etemad Melli party also insisted the reformist cleric, who charges that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed re-election in June last year was the result of fraud, had the evidence to back up his accusations.

“Hold a free election or allow a free gathering by providing security to supporters of Karroubi or (Mir Hossein) Mousavi which will show how people can wake you up” to realities, website said, referring to the two main opposition leaders.

“It is necessary for you to know that Mr. Karroubi is standing firm and tall and has evidence for all his comments,” it added in an address to the country’s regime. AFP
