Partial Iraq Election Tallies Sent For Approval

Iraq's election commission says it has sent results from 17 of Iraq's provinces in its March 7 poll for ratification by the Supreme Court, with Baghdad the lone exception.

The votes from the Baghdad region are currently being recounted.

Iraq's political parties have made little progress toward forming a new government since the parliamentary elections more than two months ago, partly due to ongoing challenges against the results and questions over the eligibility of some candidates.
