Was It Or Wasn't It? Monitoring Iran's Election For Fraud

Friday, June 19, 2009

The question of whether the presidential election results in Iran were fair may never be answered. The BBC's Jonathan Marcus joins us with his analysis of the unfolding situation. And to explain how to analyze an election's honesty, we turn to someone who has monitored elections all over the world, including the Middle East. Eric Bjornlund, president of Democracy International, a consulting firm that helps governments create free and fair elections joins The Takeaway. He's also the author of the book, Beyond Free and Fair: Monitoring Elections and Building Democracy (Woodrow Wilson Center Press) .
