Iranians celebrate Hassan Rouhani victory
Iranians have been celebrating emphatic victory of Hassan Rouhani in presidential election.

Rouhani, the architect of Tehran’s still-fragile detente with the West, led with 58.6 per cent of the vote, compared with 39.8 per cent for his main challenger, a protege of Ayatollah Khamenei.

Iranians yearning for more freedom at home and less isolation abroad have emphatically re-elected President Hassan Rouhani, throwing down a challenge to the conservative clergy that still holds ultimate sway.

State television congratulated Rouhani who led with 58.6 per cent of the vote, compared with 39.8pc for his main challenger, hardline judge Ebrahim Raisi, according to near-complete results broadcast on Saturday.
