Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi has rejected a partial recount of the recent presidential election, demanding that the disputed results be nullified. In a statement on a Mousavi-affiliated Web site Sunday, he also called for independent arbiters in the dispute. Mousavi alleges the June 12 election, in which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared the winner, was rigged. Iran's ruling clergy have ruled out a re-vote, while its top electoral body, the 12-member Guardian Council, has proposed recounting 10 percent of the votes. On Friday, the council offered to bring in six more political figures to oversee a partial recount. However, Mousavi reiterated his demand for nullification as "the most suitable solution to restore public confidence."
