    Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi’s coalition is leading in the country’s parliamentary election, a coalition spokesman said.

    “Preliminary results show that the Victory Coalition is leading the polls,” Hussein al-Adli said on Sunday.

    Meanwhile, a source with the Al-Wataniya Alliance, which is led by former Vice-President Iyad Allawi, said the alliance was leading in four Sunni-majority provinces.

    The alliance is an umbrella of 26 political parties and blocs, including the Civil Society for Reform party of Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri.

    “Preliminary results show that the Alliance was leading in the provinces of Anbar, Saladin, Nineveh and Diyala,” the source said on condition of anonymity because he was unauthorized to speak to media.

    Official results are expected to be announced in the coming days

    On Saturday, Iraqis voted in the country’s first parliamentary election since Iraq declared victory against the ISIS terrorist group.

    According to the election commission, around 10.8 million Iraqis out of 24 million eligible voters took part in the vote, with a turnout of 44.52 percent.

    The polls were held under the shadow of economic crisis, the return of thousands of refugees, political polarization, and security concerns.

    Prime Minister Haider al-[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]’s list appears to be leading in Iraq’s parliamentary election, followed by influential Shiite cleric Moqtada al-[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]’s alliance, an election commission source and a security official told Reuters on May 13.

    The sources cited unofficial initial results.

    Iraqis voted on May 12 in the first election since the defeat of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants inside the country. Final results are expected on May 14.

    Turnout was 44.52 percent with 92 percent of votes counted, the Independent High Electoral Commission said -- significantly lower than in previous elections.

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], a rare ally of both the United States and Iran, was mainly concerned with fending off Shiite Muslim groups other than [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]’s alliance, which are seeking to pull the country closer to Tehran.

    Those rivals were his predecessor as prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki, and the leader of the main Shi’ite paramilitary group, Hadi al-Amiri, both closer than he is to Iran, which has wide sway in Iraq as the primary Shiite power in the region.

    Unofficial results compiled by Reuters reporters in southern provinces also indicated that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], a firebrand cleric who led a violent uprising against U.S. troops from 2003-2011, appeared to be making a strong showing.

    If the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] list finished second, that would mark a surprise comeback by the cleric. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has a zealous following among the young, poor and dispossessed but has been sidelined by influential Iranian-backed figures such as Amiri. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has kept Tehran at a distance.

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has formed an unlikely alliance with communists and other independent secular supporters who joined protests he organized in 2016 to press the government to see through a move to stem endemic corruption.

    He derives much of his authority from his family. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]’s father, highly respected Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Sadeq al-[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], was murdered in 1999 for defying Saddam Hussein. His father’s cousin, Mohammed Baqir, was killed by Saddam in 1980.

    Whoever wins the election will have to contend with the fallout from U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to quit Iran’s nuclear deal, a move Iraqis fear could turn their country into a theatre of conflict between Washington and Tehran.
