Kirkuk's Governor and the head of Arab Alliance, Rakan Saeed Jubouri expressed his objection to the parliamentary elections results announced by the High Electoral Commission (HEC) on Saturday.

Jabouri stressed that a number of violations and technical problems occurred during the counting process, adding that these violations led Kirkuk's residents to protest to demand their rights after rigging the elections results in the province.

The governor of Kirkuk called on the United Nations (UN) to intervene immediately in order to supervise the re-counting process of all Kirkuk's ballot boxes in Baghdad.

On May 12, Iraqi people made their way to the poll stations to cast their ballots in the country's first parliamentary elections since the defeat of ISIS terrorist group in December 2017.

Saairun Alliance, which is led by Sadrist Movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr, won the most number of seats in the upcoming parliament.
