Iran election : Malaysian should observed and learn lesson from it
It is never harm for Malaysian to open their eye to watch and observed the world, to learn lesson and avoid the same mistake in the future.
Globalisation is the best arena of learning. As for the recent Iran President election, it become more “interesting” when more facts reveal.
Fivethirtyeight blog and say it is Worst damage control ever , for the election committee and people involved. Here is the view
I’ve generally tended to take the position that while the people running Iran are a bunch of reactionary thugs, they’re at least a fairly intelligent bunch of reactionary thugs.
After this revelation on Iranian Press TV, however, I’m not so certain:
Iran’s Guardian Council has admitted that the number of votes collected in 50 cities surpass the number of those eligible to cast ballot in those areas.
The council’s Spokesman Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaei, who was speaking on the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Channel 2 on Sunday, made the remarks in response to complaints filed by Mohsen Rezaei — a defeated candidate in the June 12 Presidential election.
“Statistics provided by Mohsen Rezaei in which he claims more than 100% of those eligible have cast their ballot in 170 cities are not accurate — the incident has happened in only 50 cities,” Kadkhodaei said.
The spokesman, however, said that although the vote tally affected by such an irregularity is over 3 million, “it has yet to be determined whether the amount is decisive in the election results,” reported Khabaronline.
Back in home, none of the Malaysia mainstream media yet pickup the “news”, and all focus are still on the threat of smack down the Iran protester. Perhaps Iran ruling parties failed to learn a Malaysian lesson to harness the power of “free military mail votes”.
That is one free lesson that Malaysian should not miss.
