The FT reports on alleged plans for an anti-Khamenei coalition:

“With the lack of legitimacy of the Ahmadi-Nejad government, sooner or later the country’s management will face various crises,” he said. “Mr Moussavi should set up an official political front which can embrace the defenders of the real Islamic republic...against those who are distorting it and are represented by Mr Ahmadi-Nejad.” Mr Marashi said the front was his own proposal but that it was “most likely” to be adopted, even as the opposition continues to demand a rerun of the vote. Mr Rafsanjani, he said, would be able to help such a front from his “legal and political positions”.
