PM Abadi says opposed to repeat of Iraq election

2018/06/13 | 10:50

(Iraq Now News)-  Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Tuesday he opposed any repeat of the May 12 parliamentary election, and warned that anyone who tried to sabotage the political process would be punished, after allegations of electoral fraud raised tensions, Reuters said.

Parliament has demanded a nationwide recount of votes, drawing calls for the election to be re-run.

Abadi said only the Supreme Federal Court could decide whether to re-run the vote, which was won by Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr’s bloc.

“The matter is exclusively in the hands of the judiciary, not politicians.

The government and parliament don’t have the power to cancel the election,” Abadi told a news conference.
