Guardian Council says it can find no evidence of ‘major’ irregularities in the presidential election. Meanwhile, a special court is being set up to try ‘plotters and hooligans’ involved in protests.

Reporting from Tehran — Iran’s Guardian Council today ruled out the possibility of nullifying the country’s disputed presidential election that returned hard-liner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power, saying it could find no evidence of any “major” irregularities, according to a report carried by the website of the state-owned English-language Press TV satellite news channel.

“Fortunately, in the recent presidential election we found no witness of major fraud or breach in the election,” said Abbas-Ali Kadkhodai, the council’s spokesman, according to the report. “Therefore, there is no possibility of an annulment taking place.”
