Local Editor

Partial results of the Iraqi parliamentary 
elections showed that cleric Moqtada al-Sadr's alliance is in the lead.

According to the Iraqi electoral commission on early Monday, Sadr's alliance with communists is closely followed by the Conquest Alliance led by former PMU commander Hadi al-Ameri.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's Victory Alliance is in third place.
The announced results are from 10 of the country's 19 provinces, including the capital Baghdad and Basra.

Iraqis voted on Saturday in the first national elections since the country declared complete victory over the terrorist Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL'] group.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi electoral commission announced that 44.5 percent of those eligible had cast their ballots in the elections.

Final results are expected later on the day. Over 7,000 candidates contested 329 seats in the parliament that will choose a new president, premier and government in Iraq.

Among major challenges facing the new Iraqi premier is ensuring security and reconstructing the war-torn country.
