Maliki: There are intentions to manipulate parliamentary elections

Nouri al-Maliki

Head of State of Law Coalition Nouri al Maliki said there are intentions to manipulate the parliamentary elections, despite facing rigging allegations by him and his coalition.


In televised statement, the pro-Iran politician called on the High Electoral Commission (HEC) to follow up this issue as a result of its dangerous effect on the elections, as it might change the course of the elections process, demanding all political blocs to adhere to the code of ethics put forward by the United Nations.


He said the elections would move Iraq to a new stage, especially as it is a legitimate and moral duty.


Iraq will hold legislative elections by May 12th. The integrity of this elections is questionable. Clerics and politicians say fraud will happen due to the control of militias over the polling centers.
