After Iran’s disputed presidential election, we have three different categories of people who now challenge the regime by taking to the streets:
- The first category belongs to a Muslim population who voted for Mousavi or Kahroubi by conviction; they still capitalise their hope in reforms within the Islamic Republic of Iran.
- The second one is those who voted for one of the “reformists” as a “catalyst” to ease the way for a secular and democratic regime. They voted for them as the lesser evils, hoping to have one of them pave the way toward freedom and secularism in the future.
- And the third category belongs to the Iranians who boycotted the election and want an immediate democratic and secular regime
