Moqtada al-Sadr has reportedly retained his lead in Iraq’s parliamentary election following a full recount.
According to Xinhua, the results showed no change in 13 of Iraq’s 18 provinces, and changes in four provinces involving five seat-winners within their own coalitions.
The recount did not alter the initial results significantly, with Sadr keeping his total of 54 seats.
