Iraq's election commission said it had completed a manual recount of votes from a parliamentary election held in May, after deciding to cut the process short in Baghdad, state television said Monday.

The commission canceled the recount in the remaining half of the capital, the broadcaster said.

Parliament had ordered the recount in June after a government report concluded that there were widespread violations.
