Nearly Half of Iranian MP's Refuse To Go To Ahmadinejad's Election Party

The BBC reports:

More than 100 MPs appear to have snubbed an invitation to celebrate Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's election win, local press reports say.

All 290 MPs were invited to the victory party on Wednesday night but 105 did not turn up, the reports say.

A BBC correspondent says the move is a sign of the deep split at the top of Iran after disputed presidential polls.

I don't really know how Ahmadinejad was planning to celebrate, but he had a lot less friends to do it with than he expected.
