Presidential election results to be announced gradually: official
Iran’s Interior Ministry says the results of the country’s upcoming presidential election will be announced gradually, reversing an earlier decision to declare the outcome all at once.

 “After getting the opinion of the Guardian Council and the resolution of a legal issue, the results of the vote counts in this election will be announced gradually,” said head of the Interior Ministry’s election headquarters Mohammad Hossein Moqimi late Wednesday, according to the ministry’s website.

The Guardian Council is tasked with overseeing the election process.

The remark came despite a Tuesday announcement by Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli, who said the election results would be announced at once based on the Presidential Election Law, Press TV eported.

In response, Abbasali Kadkhodai, the spokesman opposed the decision to announce the results at once and said that the supervisory body will discuss the issue with the Interior Ministry.

Moqimi said that the Interior Ministry has accepted the Guardian Council’s interpretation of an article under the election law concerning the manner of announcing the election results.
