Rift In The Regime?

by Chris Bodenner

There seems to be a showdown between Khamenei and Ahmadi over the latter's choice for VP:

The Supreme Leader has ordered Ahmadinejad’s first deputy to resign from Ahmadinejad’s cabinet just days after his appointment, according to the Deputy Speaker of the Parliament. [...] “Without any delay, the dismissal order or Mashaei’s resignation must be announced by the President.” [...] However, Ahmadinejad’s senior assistant says “the decision to appoint Mashaei will not be revisited,” according to BBC Persian.

Meanwhile, the protests continue.
