A Farsi speaking Dish reader translates the formal statements of the two leading opposition candidates:

Moussavi calls the election results "stunning" and in his words:

"People who stood in long lines to cast their ballots and know for whom they have voted, are watching in astonishment to the magic being played by the election official and media".

He also calls the election a "big game", warning he will not concede to this "dangerous charade". Karroubi also calls the election results "comical" and void of any legitimacy, declaring he will not concede. He says: "This is just the beginning of the story".

I have never heard such hard language from anyone inside the government.

Know hope.
