Iraq election results 2010 - latest news, updates and details
Partial results of the second parliamentary elections that were held in Iraq in Sunday, will be announced on Wednesday as per the electoral commission. These partial results will show a broad picture of the electoral mandate.

PARTIAL RESULTS of Iraq’s second parliamentary elections will be announced on Wednesday, March 10, to provide a broad picture of the electoral mandate. The decision taken by the country's electoral commission on Tuesday, shows that the vote counting process going on in Baghdad is on schedule.

Sunday's assembly polls, which saw about 62 per cent of the total voting population in Iraq turn up for the polls, may see a coalition goverment getting rule, with no major parties recieving a majority. This would in turn ensure that a small number seats may decide which new government will be formed and what negotiations may take place.

A candidate of the Iraqi National Alliance, Hadi Al Ameri said, “I think all the major four alliances have won between 60 to 90 seats each. The other major lists won between 5 to 10 seats each.”

As per speculation, though candidates led by Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al Maliki and Ayad Allawi, a former prime minister, have appeared to do well, there is a sizeable Kurd population which polled well too. The Kurd region had one of the highest voter turnout in the country.

Final results for the second Parliamentary elections in Iraq may be out by the end of March, but the drawing up of coalitions and alliances has already begun. As per reports, Sunni tribal leaders have proposed an alliance with Ayad Allawi, a secular Shiite. Meanwhile, followers of Moktada al Sadr, have anounced that they would oppose Prime Minister Nuri Kamal Al Maliki in getting another term in office.
