TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will hold run-off parliamentary elections for some cities and towns where candidates could not get the required minimum 25 percent of the votes cast in Friday’s elections, state TV said on Saturday.

“The run-off for some seats will be held in late (Iranian month of) Farvardin or early Ordibehesht (late April),” Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli told a news conference.

“Also early results for Tehran will be announced tonight but the final result might take longer to be announced.”
