Iranians headed to the polls friday for run-off parliamentary elections. One-hundred-thirty candidates are competing for the remaining 65 seats.

Conservative rivals of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed control of parliament in the first round of elections. More than two-thirds of the seats were won by the ruling Islamic establishment, effectively giving them complete control of the governing body.
