Iran Elections: Moderate Bloc Advances In Runoff, State Media Says (SNEHA SHANKAR,  04/30/16, IB Times)

A report by Iran's Fars news agency said the coalition formed by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani won 33 of the total 68 seats contested in the second round runoff parliamentary elections, while the conservatives won 21 seats, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

The AFP report also noted that if confirmed, this would give reformists 128 seats in the 290-member parliament, just 18 shy of a majority but more than the 124 seats grabbed by the rivals. The remaining seats would go to independent candidates. [...]

A report by conservative Tasnim news agency, also cited by AFP, said that Rouhani's allies won 35 seats in the second round.
