President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's sister fails to win parliamentary seat
By The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) ' 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.
