Kurdistani parties keep all seats after Iraq's largely unchanged recount results

BAGHDAD, Iraq — The independent electoral body for Iraq revealed on Thursday that it found no differences in the number of seats for the top lists in the May 12th parliamentary election, including for all Kurdistani parties. 

 

In Kirkuk, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) secured 6 seats, the Arab Alliance 3, and the Turkmen lists 3, thus no changes from the commission's preliminary figures released in May.

 

Similarily in Erbil, the Kurdistan Democratic Party won 8 seats, PUK 2, New Generation 2, and 1 each for the Coalition for Democracy and Justice, the Change Movement (Gorran), and the Kurdistan Islamic League (Komal).

 

The Christian quota seat in Duhok went to Al Rafidain; other parties remain unchanged: KDP won 10 seats and the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) 1.

 

Sulaimani was also unchanged. The PUK secured 8 seats, Gorran  4, New Generation 2, KIU 1, KDP 1, CDJ 1, and Komal 1. 

 

In Nineveh, the KDP kept its 6 seats. In Saladin and Diyala, the PUK also kept its 1 seat in each respective province.

 

Muqtada al-Sadr's winning Sayirun Alliance kept its 54 seats. Other top politicians kept their seat totals. Hadi al-Amiri secured 47 on Fatih; Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi won 42 on Nasr, while former PM Nouri al-Maliki took 26 seats as head of the State of Law Coalition.

 

As the manual recount has been completed, a round of political party appeals will follow. The final and official results will pend a ruling from Iraq’s federal court.

 

Iraq held a parliamentary on May 12. Many parties disputed the results and the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) began a manual recount of ballots.

"independent" electoral body my behind | 10/8/2018
Foreigners reading this will be fooled by the name "the independent electoral body" or "High justice court" or "Iraqi constitution". Iraq is ranked as the most corrupt disfunctional country on earth, toilet paper has more worth than the so called law in Iraq. Highly corrupt politicians that are usually puppets of Iran, Turkey or Saudi Arabia are running the show, with a few exceptions like Sadr and Gorran who are against the meddling of neighbors and corruption, but they're helpless against all the other parties which have their own militas.
