Early vote count in Iran gives Rowhani wide lead

Published: 06.15.13, 07:42 / Israel News

Iran's reformist-backed presidential candidate surged to a wide lead in early vote counting Saturday, a top official said, suggesting a flurry of late support could have swayed a race that once appeared solidly in the hands of Tehran's ruling clerics.


Rowhani had about 48.2 percent of the more than 3 million votes tallied, the interior ministry reported, well ahead of Tehran Mayor Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf with about 16.1 percent. Hardline nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili was third with about 12.6 percent. It was unclear when the final count would be known. (AP)
