Tragic Election

CNN keeps tweeting me about presidential election in Iran. At first I didn't give a damn about this election. But when I read some scary news, like there are already some victim from the protest, against the result from the election, it makes me sad and want to write something about it.

The Candidates

These are the two "big" guys that are competing in this election, they are Ahmadinejad and Mousavi respectively. The left one wins with 62.63%, while the right guy only get 33.75% from all the votes across Iran. Both claim that they are the winner. When I see the polling, these two guys seem figuratively to be a tough guy. They have like 50 - 50 chance.

Protest by young people

There are some anomally that drives people to protest (You can read that from wikipedia). According to CNN there are 19 people died because of this protest. Ironic, election supposed to represents celebration of democracy, not funeral of the loved ones.

Candle that represents those who died

Come to think of it, soon there will be a presidential election in my homecountry. Hopefully, there will be no such a thing happen. Let's vote for peace ok? =D
