Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Moussavi has rejected a government deal proposing to conduct a partial recount of the June 12 Presidential Election votes.

Moussavi has insisted again that the results be annulled. In a statement on his website, Moussavi questioned the impartiality and fairness of the proposed panel that would conduct the recount.

Iran's Guardian Council had offered to randomly recount 10 percent of the ballots from the June 12 vote that members of the opposition claim was rigged.

The massive street demonstrations that took place following the disputed election have mostly subsided after hundreds of arrests and a continuing heavy police presence. At least 25 people were killed in clashes with the riot police so far.
