The Guardian Council, Iran's top legislative body, said on Monday it would issue a ruling regarding complaints filed by defeated Iranian presidential candidates within 10 days, Reuters reported. A spokesman for the council, which must formally approve the election results for the outcome to stand, said appeals has been received from both Mir Hossein Mousavi and and from Mohsen Rezaie. "Mousavi and Rezaie appealed yesterday. After the official announcement (of the appeal) the Guardian Council has seven to 10 days to see if it was a healthy election or not," Reuters quoted Guardian Council spokesman Abbasali Kadkhodai as saying. "After reviewing their complaints, the result will be announced to the candidates," Kadkhodai said, according to Iranian ISNA news agency.
