division in Iranian government
In the June 12 election in Iran current President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad received 63 percent of the vote to 34 percent for former prime
minister Mir Hossein Mousavi. Hundreds of thousands of Mousavi supporters have
protested claiming the elections were rigged.

in the Iranian capitalist class. A sizable section of the country’s rulers saw
Mousavi as the best candidate to reknit ties with Washington and end the
economic and financial sanctions on Iran. The Iranian rulers are also concerned
about the instability that could result from such moves. At the same time
Washington continues its imperialist campaign to oppose any development by Iran
of nuclear power or weapons.
