Results of Iranian Presidential Election

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won more than 62 percent of the vote in the official count, far surpassing his main challenger, Mir Hossein Mousavi. But in Iran's biggest cities, Mousavi narrowed the gap, getting 42 percent to the incumbent's 54 percent across the 13 cities with populations above 500,000. Mousavi won Tehran and Zahedan outright.
