Iraq's election commission has released final results for the parliamentary election.

As expected, the Sayirun alliance of Muqtada al-Sadr and the Communist Party has won the most seats - 54 of the parliament's total 329.

The Fatih alliance with ties to Iranian-backed militias came second with 47 seats, pushing the Victory (Nasr) alliance of incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi into third place with 42 seats.

Among the Kurdish parties, the KDP won the most seats with 25, putting it fifth overall in the country, one seat behind Nouri al-Maliki's State of Law coalition. 

The PUK won 18 seats.

The breakdown of the frontrunners and the Kurdish parties is as follows: 

Sayirun – 54 seats
Fatih – 47 seats
Victory (Nasr) alliance – 42 seats
State of Law – 26 seats
KDP – 25 seats
Al-Wataniya – 21 seats
Hikma Front – 19 seats
PUK – 18 seats
Gorran – 5 seats
New Generation – 4 seats
Komal – 2 seats 
CDJ – 2 seats
KIU – 2 seats

Parties have three days to file complaints.
