Shafaq News/ The Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq confirmed today, Saturday, that there are no appeals against the results of the parliamentary elections “at the present time” with the Federal Court.

Imad Jamil, a member of the media team in the commission, told Shafaq News Agency, “There are no appeals against the results of the early parliamentary elections at the present time to the Federal Supreme Court, but there are complaints submitted to it, one from the Al-Fateh Alliance, another complaint about the quota for women, and a third from 3 candidates.”

Imad suggested that “the Federal Supreme Court will ratify the results of the early parliamentary elections in the near future, after considering the complaints submitted to it,” noting that “there is no constitutional or temporal timing that obliges the Federal Supreme Court to ratify any decision according to any period of time.”

The Federal Court, “the highest judicial authority in Iraq,” has set the 13th of this month as the date to consider a claim to annul the results of the Iraqi elections, which was presented by Hadi al-Amiri, the head of the “Al-Fateh” coalition, the Secretary-General of the Badr Organization.
