Mousavi Ally Claims Lead In Iran Election (Javno, 6/12/09)

An ally of Mirhossein Mousavi said the moderate candidate was winning most votes in Iran's presidential election on Friday, but President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's camp dismissed the claim as "psychological war".

Sadegh Kharazi, an ally of Mousavi, told Reuters that surveys made by reformers showed former prime minister Mousavi was getting about 58-60 percent of the votes cast so far. He was speaking about three hours before polling stations were officially due to close at 6 p.m. (1330 GMT).
