Iraq’s Supreme Court ratifies the results of the elections

The Federal Supreme Court ratified, on Monday, the results of the Iraqi parliamentary elections that were held on October 10.

By taking this decision, the Federal Court resolved a three-month controversy over the election results, which were rejected by some blocs, including the Shiite Coordination Framework that accused the IHEC of fraud and manipulations.

The final results showed that the Sadrist Movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr won 73 seats, followed by the “Progress (Takadum)” Coalition led by Muhammad al-Halbousi with 37 seats. Next, the State of Law Coalition led by former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki with 33 seats, then the Kurdistan Democratic Party led by Masoud Barzani with 31 seats.

Al-Fateh Alliance won 17 seats in the last elections.

Iraq’s Supreme Court rejected the complaint lodged by al-Fateh, to dispute October’s election results, a court ruling read by the Court’s chairman, Jassim Mohammed, said.

The Court called on the Iraqi Parliament to amend the law and adopt hand counting and tallying exclusively.

On the other hand, an informed political source said that the new Iraqi Parliament will hold its first session on Monday, January 10, 2022.
