Parliament on Wednesday voted for amendments to the election law which force the IHEC to conduct a manual recount, after it had initially declined to do so. The council ditched the leadership of the election commission and made a decision to annul votes from Iraqis out of the country.

"But everything really seemed to kick in yesterday when Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi endorsed the findings and the recommendation of a ministerial committee and alleged that there were "dangerous violations" in the election".

Al-Abadi told his weekly press conference that the commission found "widespread manipulation" and faulted election authorities for "not taking the needed measures or taking wrong ones".

The election drew a historically low voter turnout of 45 percent, reflecting widespread disgust among Iraqis with their political leaders.

Sadr City is a stronghold of the nationalist cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose political bloc won a 12 May parliamentary election. Abadi's bloc came in third.

It's unclear whether a recount would change the outcome of the election.

The surprise result of the Iraqi elections means that Iraq faces a long period of talks to form a coalition government that will coincide with the OPEC meeting later this month.

He banned high-ranking IHEC officials from travelling overseas without his approval and said criminal charges might be brought against some individuals.
