Pro Ahmadinejad's forces got defeated in city council election [1]. Digital Kelachinkov analysed the outcome of this defeat. He says“Populist-fundamentalist” is probably the best term for describing Ahmadinejad and his group. This group has a theoretic wing and also a populist one recent defeat of their supporters in the elections may result in weakening the populist side and strengthening the theoretic one. This means the “carriers of God’s message” may start to forget “to save people’s soul” and less strive at “winning the nation’s heart [2]”[Fa].
