Iran’s Supreme Leader Tightens Grip on Next Elections

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has begun to tighten his grip on the process leading up to Iran’s upcoming presidential elections in June.

A campaign of arrests, beatings, public lashings and executions has followed a clear warning to Iranians not to contemplate another uprising similar to that which tried to land reformist Green Movement candidate Mir Hossein Moussavi  as president in 2009.
