Jafar al-Moussawi, a spokesman for Sadr’s leader Moqtada al-Sadr, said on Saturday that the parliament was not fit to cancel the election results, noting that any such action would lead to chaos.

Moussawi said in a statement: “It is not the powers of the House of Representatives to cancel or amend the election results, even if through the legislation of law,” but added: “because we will be here for tasks far from the concept of legislation and close to the establishment to chaos.”

He explained that “the law of the Electoral Commission to draw the party to appeal and complaints and the mechanism to be followed when the results,” noting that “included the allocation of a judicial body of the Iraqi Court of Cassation to consider appeals in accordance with the law.”

A source in the House of Representatives said earlier Saturday that 160 deputies had entered the parliament to attend the special session called by the presidency of the Council.
