Iraq’s supreme court on Thursday ordered a manual recount of last month’s legislative elections.

The court found that the decision by parliament to order a manual recount in response to allegations of electoral fraud did not violate the constitution, its president Medhat al-Mahmud told a news conference.

All of the roughly 11 million ballots, including those of voters living abroad, displaced persons and security forces, must be recounted, Mahmud said.

The result was contested following allegations of irregularities in the election, Iraq’s first since the defeat of the ISIL terrorist group.
