Posted by Parsin on June 12, 2009

An Iranian woman, left, casts her ballot at a polling station in the Iranian embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, Friday, June 12, 2009. Iranians voted Friday on whether to keep hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in power for four more years or replace him with a reformist more open to loosening the country's Islamic restrictions and improving ties with the United States.

Iranians packed polling stations from boutique-lined streets in north Tehran to conservative bastions in the countryside Friday with a choice that's left the nation divided and on edge: keeping hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in power or electing a reformist who favors greater freedoms and improved ties with the United States.

Posted by Parsin on June 10, 2009

Rooz spoke with Mohsen Armin, one of the leaders of the Sazman-e Mojahedin Engelab Eslami (Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization), about Mir-Hossein Mousavi, the presidential candidate endorsed by the political party in this Friday’s election. Read on for the details.
