BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq’s Supreme Federal Court is the only entity that has the right to decide if a parliamentary election held in May needs to be re-run، Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s spokesman told Reuters on Monday.

“This is a matter for the Federal Court and not for the executive branch or any other entity،” said Saad al-Hadithi when asked if the prime minister had a comment on the speaker of parliament’s call for another election.

Parliament had mandated a manual recount of the election after a number of political parties alleged fraud. A storage site holding half of the ballot boxes from the capital caught fire on Sunday.
