Iraq: Popular Movements Protest Parliamentary Elections Results
Popular movements have blocked several roads in Iraq to protest the results of the elections.
Al Mayadeen reporter in Iraq revealed today that popular movements have started in several areas in al-Basra governorate in protest of the elections' process and results. The roads that were blocked, according to the reporter, were as follows: al-Husayniya road leading to Kirkuk-Baghdad International road, Aden Square, and Mahmudiyah south of Baghdad.
The reporter stated that Al-Fatah Alliance and the resistance factions lead the movements, refusing any internal fighting in the aim to thwart plots of sedition.
In this context, protesters asserted that the Electoral Commission numbers do not match those registered on their machines.
This comes following the Coordination Framework’s previous rejection of the elections' results.
