BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: An official with the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC), Hamdiya al-Husseini, on Monday said that the overall turnout for Iraq’s parliamentary election will be announced this noon.
“Ballot boxes arrived at the IHEC this morning,” the semi-official al-Iraqiya TV channel quoted Husseini as saying.
Nearly 19 million Iraqis eligible to vote from Iraq’s 18 provinces headed to the country’s voting stations yesterday (March 7) to choose 325 members of Parliament.
A special voting that included detainees, hospital-bound patients and security personnel who are working on the election day took place in the country over the past few days.
Guess Iraq finds out "who" won at noon.
