BNO News Wire is reporting that Iran's election committee found no irregularities in the vote and confirmed that Ahmadinejad won the June 12 presidential election.
According to the wire service, the committee says it finished a recount conducted in the presence of representatives of defeated conservative candidate Mohsen Rezaei.
Iranian state television reported that Rezaei is dropping his complaints about the voting for the sake of the country, according to the latest update from The Post's Thomas Erdbrink and William Branigin:
"The [current] political, social and security situation has entered a sensitive and decisive phase, which is more important than the election," Mohsen Rezai, a former commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard Corps, said in a letter to the Guardian Council, which oversees Iranian elections. Rezai finished third in the voting with 1.7 percent, according to the official tally released by the Interior Ministry.
