Conservatives are on course for a landslide victory in Iran’s parliamentary elections as figures released Saturday show them winning 195 out of 253 seats.

Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.

Reformists have fared poorly and won just 18 seats, while independents secured 40 seats, according to Iran’s elections committee.

The election committee said 171 results were finalized and the rest are likely to be announced Sunday.

There were a total of 55,000 polling stations across the country opened for voters at 8 a.m. local time (0430 GMT).

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was among the first voters in the capital, Tehran.
