Majority of seats in the parliament was gained by the coalition "United Front of Conservatives", representing the camp of supporters of Iranian supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei according to latest results, Iranian media reported.

One of the main contenders of "United Front of Conservatives", headed by Chairman of the Iranian Assembly of Experts Ayatollah Mohammad-Reza Mahdavi Kani, was "Front of Stability of the Islamic Revolution", consisting of persons released from their posts during Ahmadinejad's reign.

The candidates of this coalition gained fewer seats in the parliament than independent candidates. But the most remarkable aspect is the failure of Ahmadinejad's supporters.

Only in Tehran province in second round, 11 candidates from "United Front of Conservatives", 8 from Front of Stability of the Islamic Revolution", and 2 from "Nation's Voice".

As a result of yesterday's voting, 40 candidates from 32 voting districts were elected in 52 cities of Iran. A total of 4 cities remain for the votes there to be counted - Tehran, Eslamshahr Rey, Shemiranat.

Overall, 130 candidates from 33 constituencies of Iran participated in the elections. Among 130 candidates, 65 will be elected into the country's parliament. So far, 40 of them have been elected, which makes up for 61,5 percent.

According to Iranian news sources, 60-70 percent of activity was observed at the second round of elections.

Iran's Intelligence Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said yesterday that 225 electees underwent country's parliamentary accreditation.

The first meeting of the Iranian parliament is planned to be held on the seventh date of Khordad month 1391 in Islamic calendar (May 27, 2012).
