    Iraqi election recount results ratified, paving way for government formation Empty Iraqi election recount results ratified, paving way for government formation

    A recount of votes cast in Iraq's disputed parliamentary elections were backed by the country's supreme court on Sunday, making the results official and finally paving the way for the formation of a government after months of delay.

    Supreme court spokesman Iyad al-Samouk announced it had ratified the results of a manual recount announced last week, which supported the initial results that placed Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in the lead, despite widespread claims of voter fraud after the May election.

    The ratification makes the results formal and lawmakers now have to gather and elect a speaker, then president and finally a prime minister and cabinet within 90 days.

    Allegations of fraud prompted the recount, but the only change that came from it was an extra seat for the Fatah Alliance of pro-Iranian former paramilitary fighters, which remains in second place. There are 329 seats in the Iraqi parliament.

    The original 12 May poll involved a new electronic system for tallying votes cast, rather than counting voting slips manually - a process that has been criticised as being ripe for abuse.
    A panel of judges overseeing the recount later limited its scope, ruling that it would only cover suspect ballots flagged in formal complaints or official reports on fraud.

    Overseas votes cast in Iran, Turkey, Britain, Lebanon, Jordan, the United States and Germany were recounted.

    Sadr presents himself as a non-sectarian nationalist opposed to both the United States and Iran's influence over his country. The Iraqi Communist Party forms part of Sadr's Sairoon Alliance.

    The top three winning blocs, all Shia-led, have upwards of 140 seats between them. At least 165 seats are needed to form a government, although traditionally the ruling bloc in parliament tends to be larger so as to include Sunni Arab and Kurdish lawmakers.

    The political uncertainty over the make-up of the new government has raised tensions at a time when public impatience is growing over poor basic services, unemployment and the slow pace of rebuilding after a three-year war with the Islamic State militant group.

    Iraqi election recount results ratified, paving way for government formation Empty Iraqi Supreme Court Ratifies Parliamentary Election Results - Reports

    Post by chouchou Sun 19 Aug 2018, 8:49 am

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Federal Supreme Court of Iraq has ratified the results of the country’s parliamentary election, which took place on May 12, the Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported Sunday, citing a court’s representative.

    The Iraqi authorities began recounting votes in early July. The process was carried out gradually at polling stations in six provinces over reports of multiple violations. Representatives of the United Nations, political blocs and candidates have been involved in observing the recount. The recount was completed in early August.

    The parliamentary election was held in Iraq for the first time since the defeat of the Daesh* terrorist group there. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced that the country had been freed from the Daesh terrorist group in December 2017.

    According to the results initially published by the Iraqi electoral commission, the Alliance towards Reforms (Sairun) came first, the Fatah Alliance came second, while Abadi's Victory Alliance was third.

    Iraqi election recount results ratified, paving way for government formation Empty Iraqi Supreme Court ratifies election results, inter-party negotiations intensify

    Post by chouchou Sun 19 Aug 2018, 8:50 am

    ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Federal Supreme Court of Iraq announced on Sunday it had ratified the results of the country’s May 12 parliamentary elections, three days after the Iraqi High Electoral Commission (IHEC) delivered the votes.

    “After careful review and deliberation of the names and the objections directed towards some of them, the Federal Supreme Court issued [by consensus] its decision this afternoon and approved the names [of the elected members] presented,” read the statement released by the court.

    The first to be held since the rise and fall of the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq, the nationwide election was marred by allegations of fraud which eventually resulted in an order by parliament —which the FSC ratified— to recount the votes manually. The newly-introduced and used electronic vote casting devices were deemed untrustworthy by parties who filed complaints with the commission.

    In late June, the Supreme Court also [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] part of the parliament’s decision to freeze the work of the IHEC, assigning nine judges to manage the recount instead.

    On Aug. 9, the commission [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] there was no significant change from results it had initially announced and that all winning blocs maintained the same number of seats.

    The 54 seats that influential Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s Sairoon Coalition won after the May 12 vote have not changed, the IHEC revealed, as was the case with the runner-up, the Iran-backed Hadi al-Amiri’s al-Fatih Coalition, with 47 seats. Incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s Nasr (Victory) Coalition stayed at 42 seats.

    The Supreme Court’s announcement comes as competing factions engage in intense negotiations to assemble the “largest bloc” and form government.

    Sources have told Kurdistan 24 there are talks of the Sadr-led Sairoon, Ammar al-Hakim’s al-Hikma (Wisdom), and the Iyad Allawi-led al-Wataniya (National) coalition may announce the formation of said bloc Sunday evening.

    Other sources claim the State of Law, led by former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, may also attempt to form the largest bloc after holding talks with other coalitions, including those in the Kurdistan Region.

    Iraqi election recount results ratified, paving way for government formation Empty Iraqi election results approved

    Post by chouchou Sun 19 Aug 2018, 8:52 am

    ollowing allegations of widespread fraud, several parties raised objections to the announced results of parliamentary elections held in Iraq on May 12.

    On June 6, Iraqi Parliament decided for the recount of votes by hand and the decision was approved by the Iraqi Federal Court on June 21.

    The manual recount of votes began on July 4 and ended on August 6.

    After the approval of the election results by the Federal Court of Iraq, Iraqi President Fuad Masum should assign the winning party to form a government within 15 days.



    According to the Iraqi Constitution, the new government must be formed in 90 days after the court’s approval of the results.
