The Supreme Leader has spoken... "I rule. The word Republic in our name as the Islamic Republic of Iran does not mean YOU rule. You are followers."

from The Wall Street Journal

Iran's supreme leader said Friday there was "definitive victory" and no rigging in disputed presidential elections that set off days of unprecedented protests, a day after the Guardian Council said it would invite the three unsuccessful presidential challengers to a meeting.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a rare speech, offered no concession to opposition supporters who are demanding the elections be canceled and held again.
He blamed the U.K. and Iran's enemies (USa) for the unrest, vigorously defending the ruling system.
