Allawis coalition - All alliances will change after manual countingThe National Coalition led by Iyad Allawi, on Wednesday, change the form of political alliances with the emergence of the results of the new elections, indicating that the designation of any person to take up positions sovereign is premature.

MP Abdul Karim Abtan said in a press statement that “the results of the elections are not fixed and will curse the results of different after the end of counting and manual counting, and therefore all alliances will change based on the results.”

Abtan said that “political alliances are not stable and do not have clear visions to form the next government and the development of its program.”

On the nomination of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Salim Jubouri for the second state, said Abtan that “talk about any position or personal is not possible without the ratification of the Federal Court on the results was not clear the point of the national political coalition.”

The parliamentary elections took place on 12 May 2018 in Baghdad and the provinces amid tight security.

The Electoral Commission announced hours later, that the participation rate reached 44% with the participation of more than 10 million people out of the 24 million eligible to participate in the elections.

The results came out of the alliance of Sowron, supported by Muqtada al-Sadr first at the level of the provinces followed by the Fatah Alliance led by Hadi al-Amiri, and then the victory coalition led by Prime Minister Haider Abadi.

The political and media circles were preoccupied with monitoring the low turnout of polling stations in different Iraqi cities, where the participation rate reached 44% compared to the 2014 elections which reached 60%.

He explained the low participation rates with many problems in the voting procedures, and the failure of electronic auditing, in addition to the general frustration of the repetition of the traditional political forces themselves.

The days after the election witnessed a wide debate among the political circles that prompted the House of Representatives to hold a session and vote on the amendment of the election law, including the re-counting and manual counting of the results.

The Federal Supreme Court voted later to respond to the appeals filed on the Third Amendment Law of the House of Representatives Elections Law, while ruling that the cancellation of the elections abroad and the special vote were unconstitutional.
