When the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, sends a congratulation letter to the U.S. president-elect Barack Obama, it has a lot of meaning. Although president Ahmadinejad for Iranians is as 'good' as George W. Bush for Americans, but we look forward to our next presidential election. The next presidential election will be held in Iran on 12 June 2009. It will be the 10th presidential election to be held in the country and we hope a 'reformist' president will be elected.
There are two major political parties in Iran; Conservatives and Reformists. Mahmoud Ahamdinejad is from the Conservative party. People are really frustrated with his domestic and foreign policies. We look forward to a 'change' too.
