Iranian Presidential Election Turning into a Circus

Ahmadinejad may plan to reveal proof that the 2009 elections were rigged if his candidate's registration for presidential candidacy is not accepted.
Former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani enters Iran's presidential race

According to the source, Ahmadinejad plans to derail the elections if Mashaei’s registration for presidential candidacy is not accepted. Khamenei desperately wants this election to go without incident to show the world that the regime is united and has popular support.

It will be interesting to see if Khamenei backs down and allows Mashaei to run just to keep Ahmadinejad in check, but then picks his own candidate out of the hat, as the regime always does, and as they did with Ahmadinejad himself, to keep the clerical regime alive longer.
