Defeated Iraqi parties seek to get election results annulled

Iraq's federal court is expected to uphold the results of the election, which has been praised by Iraqi and international observers.

The losing sides in the Iraqi elections are waiting for the Federal Supreme Court to rule on the lawsuit to invalidate the results filed by Fatah Alliance leader Hadi al-Amiri, who described the annulment of the election results as the only way out of the current political crisis.

Since the Oct. 10 election, the forces that lost seats in Parliament, including the Fatah Alliance, Wisdom Movement and the Victory Alliance, have refused to accept the results and formed the so-called Coordination Framework alongside the State of Law Coalition.
