Ali Larijani Congratulated Mir Hossein Mousavi on Election Day

Ali Larijani the current speaker of Parliment is a conservative figure who is believed to be a close adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei . The meeting Ali Larijani and Ahmadinejad held last week regarding the appointment of cabinet members did not end in any results as tabnak reported.  Following the meeting, Larijani sent a letter signed by 200 members of Parliament criticizing Ahmadinejad for not consulting them before choosing cabinet members.

Today Rajanews, a pro-Ahmadninejad news site published an interview with a Member of Parliament questioning Ali Larijani’s PhD degree.  He also said:  “What Ali Larijani did on the evening of election day, calling Mousavi and congratulating him for winning the election is inexcusable. As a head of Parliament and someone who clearly has access to classified and firsthand information calling Mousavi president even before the polls closed, encouraged him to take aggravating and dissonant positions after the election results were announced. Mousavi’s behavior has compromised the security and safety of people,  harmed the country and damaged the prestige and authority of the system. Is the act of meeting those who have turned against our regime, and emboldening Mousavi to provoke people and lead street riots, a sign of following the supreme leader?”

    The reason he congradulated him is because he won the election and did’t know that the leader was going to lie about the vote to the people.

  2. pedestrian says:

    the name of the MP who made these statements is still anonymous. So his words are not fully credible.

The vote they stole from you and the rights that they took from you unjustly are a shameful stain that cannot be hidden with whatever colour it is painted over. This is so much the case that after one year, despite all the pressures and intimidation, not only have your rightful demands not been forgotten, but this desire for change has taken deep root in different layers of society, based on an extensive social network.
