Iran Reformist Clerics Call for Referendum

Monday, July 20, 2009

A group of reformist clerics, including former President of Iran Mohammad Khatami, have called for a national referendum on the election process. The group said millions of Iranians had lost confidence in the election process after last month's disputed vote, which saw Mahmoud Ahmadinejad re-elected. The BBC’s Iran correspondent, Jon Leyne, is currently in London and joins The Takeaway to talk about it.
