IRAN-VOTE-PROVINCE GOVERNORS

Iranian President Mohammad Khatami (C) meets with Iran's provincial governors in Tehran as portraits of Iran's founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (L) and Iran's Supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (R) are seen on the wall 13 January 2004. All of Iran's 27 provincial governors have threatened to quit and a source close to embattled Khatami said at least 10 ministers had already prepared letters of resignation.
