Iranians went to the polls on February 26 to elect parliamentary representatives, and in a number of ridings, candidates went into the second round of the election.

The reformists claimed victory in most of their endorsements, and Mohammadreza Aref, the highest-ranked candidate elected in Tehran, recently said reformists expect to win at least 40 more seats in the second round.
