Guess what country this newspaper is talking about here:
- The President “has suffered a potentially fatal blow to his authority”
- In “an unprecedented rebuke,” 150 members of the legislature signed a letter bitterly attacking his policies. The signatories included many of “the president’s former fundamentalist allies, now apparently seeking to distance themselves as his prestige wanes.”
- The mounting criticism is fueling speculation that the President is politically doomed. Observers have even suggested he might be impeached and removed from office.
France? The US? Israel? Newly democratic Iraq? Somewhere else?
No, according to the Guardian, it’s Iran.
