Rouhani allies win Iran parliament elections second round: media

Reformist and moderate politicians allied with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani won most seats in second round parliamentary elections, local media reported Saturday.

Unofficial and incomplete results said that of the 68 seats being contested between 33 and 40 went to the pro-Rouhani List of Hope, with conservatives gaining 21 more MPs.

The second ballot to complete a new 290-seat parliament took place Friday because initial polls on February 26 did not produce clear winners in the 68 seats.
