ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — State media has announced that partial results for run-off elections indicate conservatives have consolidated their control of Iran's legislature.

State television and the official news agency IRNA say that of 82 seats included in Friday's run-off, 56 have produced final results.

In the first round of voting, conservatives won 132 seats out of a total 280 seats in parliament.

Saturday's final results show supporters of hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won 12 seats, his conservative critics seven, reformists 12 and independents 25.

Preliminary results in Tehran show conservatives well-placed to win 10 of the 11 seats up for grabs in the capital and reformists to pick up one seat.

Many reformist candidates were barred by the government from running in parliamentary elections.
