Friday's parliamentary election in Iran was the first since the country signed an historic nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers. President Hassan Rouhani and his allies, who fostered the agreement, came out on top, while the conservative Islamist establishment was dealt a significant blow. Meanwhile, many young Iranians say the election was rigged. We'll discuss Iran's election results and what they could mean for the country's chance of reform.

Guests:

Abbas Milani, director, Iranian Studies at Stanford University; author of "The Shah"

Pooneh Ghoddoosi, senior journalist with the BBC World Service; former host with BBC Persian
