TEHRAN (APP) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's allies have won all of the capital's 30 seats in parliament, with 90 percent of votes counted from last week's election, state television reported on Sunday.

The pro-Rouhani List of Hope, led by reformist Mohammad Reza Aref, a former vice president, knocked the number one conservative candidate, Gholam-Ali Hadad Adel, into 31st place, sealing a whitewash, according to the preliminary results.
