Turkmen to hold demonstrations, sit-ins rejecting elections in Kirkuk

Protests erupt in Ahwaz as Iranian forces use violence to limit them

Turkmen political parties are preparing to hold demonstrations and sit-ins in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk to protest the results of the Iraqi parliamentary elections.


They consider the results of the elections to fraud as the High Electoral Commission (HEC) refused their request to count the votes manually, calling on the HEC to re-hold the elections.    
The Parliamentary elections was marked by record low turnout. It was the first since Iraq declared victory over the ISIS group and the fourth since the 2003 US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
