Reprimand for Yazd Governor

The governor of Yazd was severely reprimanded by the interior minister after he revealed the rent a crowd methods deployed to welcome president Ahmadinejad during his recent visit to Yazd.

Hundreds of buses were used to bring people free of charge to the centre of the town, as well as promises of free breakfast, lunch and dinner plus cash handouts. Soldiers from barracks were told to turn up in civilian clothing and even schools were closed and teachers and pupils told to turn up for Ahmadinejad's provincial tour to their town.

The written directive on how to organise a large turn out was revealed by the Yazd governor.

let them tear each other apart. Nothing weakens this regime like their own internal fighting.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH Bahramerad, your such an idiot. Why don't you take the time to look up gerrymandering so you can learn how to spell it, and of course, figure out what it means.

You didnt answer the question I asked you in the last post. How do you consider the recent events at AKU, local issues?

Bar -Man-Kiri
1 - " "Gerrymander" is used both as a verb, meaning "to divide into political units to give special advantages to one group", as well as a noun to describe the resulting electoral geography. Although Elbridge Gerry's name was pronounced with an initial /g/ (a hard g), the "jerry" pronunciation has become most common.[4]-
2 - The Elbridge Gerry's connection is only an "examples and a perspective that deals primarily with the United States and do not represent a worldwide view of the subject."
3 - Jerrymandering - outside of the narrow American version of it refers to - " Electoral fraud " - in its widest sense.
That is - all illegal interference with the process of an election. Acts of fraud tend to involve affecting vote counts to bring about a desired election outcome, whether by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both. Exactly what constitutes electoral fraud under law varies from country to country; methods which are illegal in one country may not be in another. Many kinds of voter fraud are outlawed in specific electoral legislation, but others are in violation of more general laws such as those banning assault, harrassment or libel. Although technically the term 'electoral fraud' covers only those acts which are specifically illegal, the term is sometimes used to describe acts which, although legal, are considered to be morally unacceptable, outside the spirit of electoral laws or in violation of the principles of democracy. Show elections, in which only one candidate has a real chance of winning, are sometimes considered to be electoral fraud although they may comply fully with local laws.

Especially with national elections, successful electoral fraud can have the effect of a coup d'état or corruption of democracy. In a narrow election a small amount of fraud may be enough to change the overall outcome. However even if the outcome is not affected fraud can still have a damaging effect if not punished, as it can reduce voters' confidence in democracy. Even the perception of fraud can be damaging as it makes people less inclined to accept the outcome of elections. In extreme cases this can lead to the breakdown of democracy and the establishment of a dictatorship.

Electoral fraud is not limited to political polls and can happen in any kind of election where the potential gain is worth the risk for the cheater, as in elections for labor union officials, student councils, sports judging, and the awarding of merit to books, films, music, or television programming.
Despite many known instances of electoral fraud, it remains a difficult phenomenon to study and characterize. This follows from its inherent illegality. Harsh penalties aimed at deterring electoral fraud make it likely that any individuals who perpetrate acts of fraud do so with the expectation that it either will not be discovered or will be excused after the fact.
Now go smoke some more mexican weed and lough your little head off some more you git.

You never asked me any questions. Plus, I know nothing about these events. I haven't read about them anywhere else but here. But it seems like a localized issue, with national steam.

Bahramerad,

Wow. Your idiocy stuns me. Well, not really. But it's funny how you wrote an essay to try to vindicate yourself, instead, you came off looking like more of an idiot. HAHAHAHAHA

I think you should watch this Arab woman rip this mullah to pieces with her words. It's very compelling.
