Four Questions About That Fiddle Election

with one comment

An article on Huff Post asks four questions, and one of them is a bit obvious:

Four major issues warrant focus: (1) The Iranian government’s ability to gather, transport, and count 40-plus million hand-written ballots within a few hours in a country approximately one-fifth the size of the United States of America and nearly seven times the size of the United Kingdom; (2) Whether the protests really have spread beyond universities and major cities; (3) The role of technology in spread and suppression of dissent; and (4) What motivates the protestors and major political players in Iran.”

Elsewhere Mousavi confirms he will formalise things by what the BBC calls “a new broad-based political front.”

Update:
A reader has asked me to tell you about July 25th designated Global Day of Action for Iran.
