Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has earned an emphatic vote of confidence and reformist partners secured surprise gains in parliament in early results from elections that could accelerate the Islamic Republic's emergence from years of isolation, foreign media reports.

As of this morning, latest results showed reformist candidates have taken 29 of the 30 seats in the capital Tehran.

Rouhani and his ally former president Hashemi Rafsanjani led the winners in the assembly of experts, which is responsible for selecting the country's next supreme leader.
