The Independent High Electoral Commission had announced earlier today that 95% of the manual counting had been completed in all 3,681 stations.
It is noteworthy that the Sadrist movement, led by Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, achieved remarkable success in this election, garnering, according to preliminary results, more than 70 seats, while the Al-Fateh Alliance, which includes factions of the Popular Mobilization loyal to Iran, recorded a painful loss.
However, despite these facts, observers rule out that al-Sadr alone will be able to form a government unless he negotiates with others.
