     The Independent Electoral Commission on Thursday, not claimed responsibility for what was announced and the results of the number of seats in blocks, as revealed that it will complete the counting of the remaining stations over the next two days.

    Imad Jamil, a member of the media team in the Independent High Electoral Commission, told Iraqi News, followed by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "there are rumors circulated on social media that contained unrealistic information, and no complaints or objections to the voting process appeared until after the results were announced." .

    He added: "After announcing the results, a strong attack began on the Commission, which does not contain any evidence or accurate documents, and the published tapes say that the dates of the devices are incorrect and there are differences with the final result that is unrealistic.".

    He stressed that "what was published of the results and granted to the candidates after the completion of the voting process in the stations confirmed the sobriety of the electoral process," stressing that "not to conduct a voting process after six o'clock in the evening on the day of the general vote.".

    Jamil also pointed out that "the late dates occurred with a limited number of voting machines due to a defect in them, and their votes will be recounted.".

    He pointed out that "24 hours after the elections, 94% of the results were announced, and what remained were the manual counting stations, as a station was selected in each electoral center to manually count its results, and this was confirmed in the first commission conference after the elections.".

    He continued, "After announcing the results of 8273 public voting, 595 private votes, and 86 displaced people, they were counted manually.

     This caused differences in votes, and there are complaints and appeals. The commission must recount and sort them if the evidence is proven and then announce the results.".

    He pointed out that "the remaining 3,681 stations now will be recounted and sorted, and the Commission will not be subject to any pressure, and we will complete the counting and sorting process at all late stations on Friday, and the day after tomorrow, Saturday, and the results will be announced once and for all, and then it is possible to file appeals, as the appeals door has not closed."
