Iraqi PM orders recount in Kirkuk
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered on Monday a recount of votes in Kirkuk, amid alleged fraud in parliamentary election, Turkmen politician says. 

Arshad al-Salihi, the president of the Iraqi Turkmen Front (ITF), told Anadolu Agency that Abadi had ordered a recount over potential irregularities. 

On Saturday, Iraqis voted in the country's first parliamentary elections since 2014. 

According to Iraq’s official election commission, some 10.8 million Iraqis -- out of 24 million eligible voters -- took part in the vote, representing a turnout of 44.5 percent.
