The High Elections Commission in Iraq confirmed that the announced results of the Iraqi parliament elections today represent both public and private votes.
Imad Jamil, a member of the media team at the Electoral Commission, was quoted by the Iraqi News Agency, Imad Jamil, as saying in a statement that "the results announced today represent the public and private votes," noting that the election results were transferred manually to ensure accuracy by "100" percent.
Jamil added that the results are preliminary because there are appeals and complaints for consideration, noting that the Electoral Commission will continue to receive appeals for 3 days, and that appeals will be resolved and considered within a week of their submission.
Jamil pointed out that the total number of complaints reached 95 for the public vote and 25 for the private vote.
The Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq announced earlier today that the initial participation rate in the Parliament elections, which took place, amounted to 41 percent.
