Iranians voted for moderates from all political factions in the recent parliamentary election, President Hassan Rouhani said.
He made the remarks in a press conference in Tehran March 6, Trend's correspondent reported from the event.
"I'm glad that at the election moderates were elected among the parties and groups," Rouhani said.
He hailed the high turnout at the election, saying it strengthened the pillars of the Islamic establishment.

Rouhani further said that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has been almost concluded and the P5+1(US, UK, France, Germany, Russia and China) have done their main commitments.
People can feel results of nuclear deal implementation, Rouhani said.

Tehran has increased its oil output to 1.4 million barrels per day following the removal of the sanctions, Rouhani said, adding, the figure will reach two million barrels by next Iranian fiscal year.
