The four candidates running for president in Iran (Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, Mir Hossein Mousavi, Mehdi Karroubi, and Mohsen Rezaei) cast their ballots at various polling stations in Tehran. All except Karrubi displayed the victory sign after voting. So who is the real winner?

Reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi voted at a polling station south of Tehran, alongside his wife, who predicted that her husband "will win in the first round of voting, provided there is no vote-rigging."

Mehdi Karroubi, a reformist former parliament speaker, told reporters that he was overjoyed by the heavy turnout as well as by the interest of the international press.
