Iran-allied militias


Iran-allied militias have encircled the independent High Election Commission (IHEC) headquarters, calling for a manual vote counting, well-informed sources told the Baghdad Post by phone.


Terrorists of Badr and Assa'ib Ahl Al-Kaq militias have been seen around the IHEC, eyewitnesses confirmed. 


The polling stations closed at 18:00. 


From about 24 million Iraqis who are eligible to cast ballots, only 32 percent headed to the polling stations.
