Iraq's election commission has annulled results from 227 ballot boxes because of fraud. The final results will be based on a tally of some 31,000 ballot boxes.
Preliminary results suggest that a Shi'ite alliance will have about three-fifths of the seats in parliament. Sunni and Kurdish parties would each have about one-fifth of the total.
