Hossein Mousavi got 33.75 percent.
The other two candidates -- former parliament speaker
Mehdi Karroubi and former Revolutionary Guards chief Mohsen Rezaei -- got less
than 2 percent of the total ballots.
After the official declaration, all the three
defeated candidates filed complaints over irregularities in the election, while
