Mousavi wins Iran election with 65 percent of vote: top aide

Reformist challenger Mir Hossein Mousavi won Iran’s presidential election on Friday with 65 percent of the vote, a close aide to the former premier claimed.

“According to the information received from provinces and from Tehran, Mousavi has got 65 percent of the votes cast,” Ali Akbar Mohatshemi-Pour told AFP.

Mohatshemi-Pour spoke to AFP as the candidate was preparing to hold a news conference.

Mousavi has been running a neck-and-neck race with incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is seeking a second four-year term.
