Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq: UAE is the Main Player in Rigging the Iraqi Elections
The Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq movement in Iraq accuses an Arab country of helping to falsify the results of the parliamentary elections and says that the High Elections Commission has reneged on its promises.
The Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq movement in Iraq, which participated in the recent elections within the Al-Sadiqoun Bloc, announced today that "the UAE is the main player in rigging the recent parliamentary elections."
The movement indicated that the High Elections Commission has "reneged on its promises," the most important of which is providing observers with tapes as soon as the voting ends.
In turn, a member of the political bureau of the Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq movement, Saad al-Saadi, said in press statements to the "Al-Maalouma" agency, that "election manipulation is possible even in major countries, and Iraq is vulnerable to it."
Al-Saadi considered that the recent elections are the "worst in the history" of Iraqi elections, explaining that the United Nations mission "overlooked the clear violations that were revealed."
He also confirmed that "the Electoral Commission's reluctance to announce the full results raises great suspicion," noting that "the Al-Fateh coalition submitted about 107 complaints documented with sufficient evidence."
Earlier, the security spokesman for the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades, Abu Ali Al-Askari, confirmed that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi is the "father of election fraud."
In a statement, the Iraqi coordination framework announced that it "challenged the results" of the parliamentary elections, while Hadi al-Amiri, the head of the Iraqi Al-Fateh coalition, said, "We do not accept these fabricated results."
The Iraqi provinces are witnessing movements called by Iraqi factions, in rejection of the results of the recent parliamentary elections. The Coordinating Committee of the Iraqi Resistance issued a statement, in which it addressed the Iraqi people, calling for a conscious demonstration.
Preliminary results of the Iraqi parliamentary elections revealed that the Sadrist movement won 73 seats out of 329 in Parliament, followed by the Taqaddam bloc headed by the dissolved Parliament Speaker Mohamed Al-Halbousi with 38 seats, and the State of Law bloc led by Nuri al-Maliki came third with 37 seats.
