Hey! Why No Iraqi Election Results?

Ten days after the Iraqi elections, the announcement of the final results has been delayed further by the recount of votes in about 300 ballot boxes, the electoral commission says.

The commission had previously said that final results would be expected on Thursday.

"The Independent Electoral Commission in Iraq (IECI) will recount about 300 ballot boxes in its National Office, because the IECI discovered some discrepancies in the information," it said in a statement.

"The recounting will start at nine o'clock Iraq time on Thursday and it will be 24 hours daily until the recounting is finish. However, this procedure will delay the date of the announcement of the final results," it added.

IECI member Farid Ayar had said on Wednesday that the results would be known "in a few days".

More than 200 complaints against the 30 January election have been lodged and several votes are being verified, officials said.
