Iran awaits first results from double election

Hassan Rouhani hopes his List of Hope alliance can curtail conservative dominance of parliamentThe first results from Iran’s parliamentary election on Saturday showed a split of seats among conservatives, reformists and independent candidates, media reports said, after turnout of around 60 percent. Coming just a month after sanctions were lifted under Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers, the outcome of Friday’s vote is being seen as a de-facto referendum on President Hassan Rouhani. A political moderate, Rouhani is hoping his alliance with reformists, called The List of Hope, can curtail conservative dominance of parliament, improving his chances of passing social and political reforms.
