Iran's Guardian Council will announce its final decision Wednesday on allegations that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's June 12 election victory was rigged, the Tehran Times reports. It has already been reported that the Council has ruled out annulling the results, so this final decision might not offer much hope to Iran's protesters; neither, probably, will this explanation from the Council's spokesman of why more votes were recorded there were eligible voters in at least 50 districts:

In response to the complaints that the number of votes in some provinces exceeded the number of eligible voters, Kadkhodaii explained that this occurred because there is no law requiring people to vote in their place of residence and people can vote anywhere in the country.
