TEHRAN, June 15 (Itar-Tass) - Moderate cleric Hassan Rowhani’s victory in Iran’s presidential election is virtually beyond doubt, local mass media report.
With two-thirds (32,189,000) of ballots counted, Rowhani is leading with 51.1 percent (16.4 million) of votes.
He is followed by Tehran Mayor Mohammad Bagher (15.83 percent); Supreme National Security Council Secretary and Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili (11.46 percent); and Secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council Mohsen Rezaee (11.34 percent).
The other two candidates - former Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Velayati and ex- Minister of Post and Telegraph and Telephone Mohammad Gharazi - are trailing far behind.
According to the authorities, the presidential election showed a high turnout with 80 percent of more than 50 million Iranians eligible to vote coming to the polling stations to cast their ballots.
Rowhani can win in the first round if he receives more than 50 percent of votes after all ballots have been counted.
