Ahmadinejad's sister fails to win parliament seat

Ahmadinejad's sister fails to win parliament seat

Iranian semiofficial Mehr news agency is reporting that the sister of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has failed to win a parliamentary seat.
The Saturday report says the final result from a small town southeast of the capital shows Parvin Ahmadinejad, a close ally of the president, was defeated by his conservative rival.
Parvin Ahmadinejad was running for a seat in Garmsar, the hometown of the president, about 35 miles (60 kilometers) southeast of Tehran. She is the younger sister of the president and a current member of Tehran's municipal council.
Early returns also showed conservative rivals of Ahmadinejad were elected in many other constituencies.
The results hint that Ahmadinejad will face a more belligerent parliament in the nearly two years remaining of his second four-year term.
