The Commission expects the date of announcing the final results and seat changes

{Political: Al Furat News} The Electoral Commission announced today, Monday, the possibility of announcing the final results of the elections at the end of this week. 

Imad Jamil, a member of the media team in the commission, said, “In the coming hours, the judicial authority will finish examining and approving the 1436 electoral appeals, and thus the commission will have done its part and is preparing to announce the election results and the names of the winners, according to each electoral district, including the winners of the highest votes, the women’s quota, and the minority quota. In the coming days, it will be shown on television, and it may be announced at the end of this week.”

Jamil stated, “The change that occurred under the recent appeals will be (5) seats from what was announced in the preliminary results in Erbil, Nineveh, Kirkuk, Baghdad and Basra, and the change occurred as a result of canceling the results of stations, which led to a difference in votes between the winner and the loser.”

He pointed out that “the commission needs days before announcing the results, because the decisions of the judiciary require some time to be implemented.”

Shafaq News/ The investigation committee into the assassination attempt on Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi said, on Monday, that it has not charged anyone so far regarding the incident, which provoked angry reactions at the local and international levels.

The head of the committee, Qassem al-Araji, who is also the national security adviser, said in a press conference that “the investigation committee has not yet accused a person or entity, and that the investigation needs more time.”

Regarding the details of the incident, he said, “The attack was carried out by two drones, one of which landed on the roof of Al-Kazemi’s house and the second in his courtyard,” explaining that “the two planes landed in northeastern Baghdad, and we determined their place of departure.”

He added that “one of the projectiles exploded and the second did not,” noting that “two teams of anti-explosives and forensic evidence were sent to the crime scene and the criminal fencers were taken.”

And he continued, by saying, “A second projectile that did not explode was found on the roof of the prime minister’s house on the second day,” noting that “the attack with two projectiles on Al-Kazemi’s house confirms the direct targeting of the prime minister’s life.”

Al-Araji added, “We were surprised that two anti-explosives and forensic detachments detonated the projectile without collecting fingerprints.”

He explained, “Unfortunately, the explosive control did not perform its duty properly,” noting that the Director General of Explosive Control, Major General Sabah al-Shibli, said that the detachment had collected the fingerprints, and in the second he told the committee that he had detonated the projectile and had not taken the fingerprints.

Al-Araji pointed out that the investigation committee “decided to imprison the members of the two detachments responsible for detonating the projectile and transfer them to the Ministry of Interior,” adding that “the investigation will reach to find out the reasons behind not collecting fingerprints and detonating the projectile.”

He said, “The investigation committee asks anyone who has evidence about the incident to present it,” stressing that the committee is far from “any political debate.”

He pointed out that “the investigation committee performs its duty without any pressure, and carries out its national duty,” noting that “the prime minister recommended the investigation committee to be impartial and professional and to keep the country’s interest in mind.”

He added that “the investigation committee has not sought the assistance of any foreign party so far, and it is possible to use the efforts of brotherly and friendly countries to uncover the truth and take advantage of all possibilities.” 

He said, “It was proven to the investigation committee that the prime minister’s house has 4 exits, and it was evacuated to a safe place after the explosion.”

He pointed out that “5 meters separated the first and second projectiles, and they targeted Al-Kazemi’s exit and his seat,” adding, “We asked the Prime Minister’s office to provide us with the names of his visitors for 10 days before the incident.”

Al-Kazemi was subjected to an assassination attempt on November 7, through explosives dropped by drones on his residence in central Baghdad, which caused the injury of a number of his guards, according to the Iraqi army.

The assassination attempt came in the midst of political tensions in Iraq since the announcement of the preliminary results of the early parliamentary elections last month, due to the rejection of the results by armed Shiite forces and factions, which they say are “fabricated”, and demand a manual recount of all votes.

Fears prevail in the country that political and security tensions are a prelude to wider violence due to the rejection of the election results by the losers.

Shafaq News/ The Sadrist movement, led by Muqtada al-Sadr, sent today, Monday, a new message to the political blocs objecting to the results of the early parliamentary elections.

The leader in the movement, Issam Hussein, told Shafaq News Agency, “The political blocs that object to the results of the early parliamentary elections must yield to the outcomes of the electoral process, in light of their failure to provide support for their claim about the lack of integrity of the elections. Until now, they have not provided a single evidence about electoral fraud.”

Hussein added that “the political blocs objecting to the results of the early parliamentary elections are required to present their project quickly and to resolve their position on the political process, either by running the government or choosing the path of the political opposition, as they have not yet clear and firm position.”
