DUSHANBE, June 30, Asia-Plus  -- Iran''s electoral watchdog, the Guardian Council confirmed the result of the June 12 poll after it concluded partial vote recount.

According to Iran’s Fars News Agency (FNA), after the announcement of the result of Iran''s presidential election, which saw President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad re-elected to a second four-year term, provoked major protests in the country, the Guardian Council set up a special committee to do a partial vote recount.

Iran''s top legislative body confirmed that the recount of 10 percent of the ballot boxes carried out on Monday had shown no irregularities in the vote.

In a letter to Interior Minister Sadeq Mahsouli on Monday, head of the Guardian Council Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, confirmed the result of the polls, press tv said quoting a report by the state-run television.

"The Guardian Council after studying the issues [surrounding the Iranian election] in numerous sessions, dismisses all the complaints received, and approves the accuracy of the tenth presidential election," read the letter to the Interior Ministry.

The recount came after defeated candidates Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi rejected the result of the election as fraudulent and called for a re-run.
