Fresh Protests Rejecting Election Results in Baghdad

Alwaght- New protests questioning the results of the recent parliamentary election in Iraq were reported outside Baghdad’s Green Zone.

The protesters have chanted slogans suggesting that there have been manipulations in the results and called for manual recount of all of the ballot boxes.

A coordination body of the demonstrations on Thursday warned that this Friday will be the “last opportunity” apparently to the Independent High Electoral Commission.

Security forces were deployed by the government, using tear gas and water cannons to disperse the demonstrators.

A number of parties have protested the results and called for a full recount.

On October 25, a variety of political forces, objecting to the results of the Iraqi elections, called on the President Barham Salih, to intervene "to prevent events from heading towards something more dangerous."

The protests in the country followed the announcement of the results of the parliamentary elections, which a large group of political forces considered fraudulent, questioning the integrity and credibility of the vote counting process.
