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.
