Supporters of presidential hopeful Mir-Hossein Moussavi have taken to the streets after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared victor by a landslide.

Chanting "Moussavi! Take back our vote!", thousands of supporters of the former prime minister in the capital Tehran expressed their disbelief at the results of the Friday election.

The protests reportedly got violent after they scuffled with the Iranian police.

A Press TV correspondent reported that riot police took control of the situation.

Ahmadinejad won a landslide victory in the 10th presidential election on Friday with 24,527,516 votes (62.63 percent) against his main rival Mousavi who received 13,216,411 votes (33.75 percent).

Moussavi cried foul over election irregularities and described the final count of the vote as 'sleight of hand' by those in charge, warning of a "dangerous scenario" in the country.

Moussavi had declared himself as the definite winner of the election shortly after the polls closed on Friday. "I am the absolute winner of the election by a very large margin."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution on Saturday hailed the high voter turnout in Iran, calling on the entire nation to support the president-elect in achieving his mandate.

"The participation of over 80 percent of Iranians at the polls and the 24-million votes cast is a cause for true celebration and god willing this will ensure the continuation of the country's progress and the maintenance of national security," Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in statement.

Supporters of Ahmadinejad have announced that they plan celebration for his triumph on Sunday.
