Moderate conservative Ali Larijani Sunday easily won reelection as speaker of the Iranian parliament with 173 votes against 103 for his reformist opponent Mohammad Reza Aref, in a vote broadcast live on state radio.

The vote follows elections that saw major gains by reformists and moderates allied to moderate President Hassan Rouhani, but not enough for them to take the speaker's position.
