What “high turnout” it must have been!

The committee in charge of the Islamic Republic’s presidential election has announced that all those born on or prior to June 24 1990 (i.e. all 15 year olds) will be permitted to vote in the second round, emphasizing, “even if they did not participate in last week’s elections.”

Amir Taheri writes,

"Even if we accept the official and unverifiable results, the percentage of the electorate that took part this time is the lowest of all the nine presidential elections held in the Islamic Republic since its creation in 1979."
