Allawi warns Iraq will slide into chaos if results of elections scrapped

Ayad Allawi
Iraqi vice president Eyad Allawi on Friday warned that Iraq would side into chaos in case of canceling the outcome of the legislative elections.
He also asserted the necessity of canceling the outcome of elections in the polling stations that had witnessed fraud.
"Paying no heed to the will of voters through the massive fraud in the parliamentary elections, which led people to boycott elections, requires cancelling the outcome of the elections in the polling stations that saw fraud." Allawi wrote on his Facebook page.
Scrapping the results of the elections and calling for holding new one is difficult, he added, indicting it is hard to provide the appropriate conditions for the democratic process.
This comes amid rising calls by certain political forces for scrapping the results of the elections due to the massive fraud seen in it.
But Allawi warned in case the outcome of the elections is cancelled, the country will slide into chaos.
