Iraq Recount Doesn't Change Result

A recount of votes in the Baghdad area has not led to any changes in the final results of the 68 seats in Baghdad districts from the March 7 parliamentary elections.

"The number of seats stays as is," Saad al-Rawi, one of the nine commissioners at the Independent High Electoral Commission, said on May 16.

That poll saw former Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's Iraqi bloc take the most seats with 91 followed by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's State of Law alliance with 89. There are 325 seats in the Iraqi parliament.
