6 June 2005
It's the year 2005 (1384 in the Iranian calendar). Welcome to the only English-language site for news and views about the Iranian election co-authored by Iranians and non-Iranians. openDemocracy.net has invited leading Iranian pro-democracy journalists and bloggers from Tehran, Toronto, and Washington DC and beyond - to share their observations on the 8th presidential elections as they unfold over the next weeks. The election is on June 17th, 2005. In April 2005 openDemocracy began an article debate on the possibility of referendum in Iran, starting with an article by Mohsen Sazegara and continued with contributions from Mehrangiz Kar, Afshin Molavi, Farideh Farhi and many others.
