Sadrists claim most seats in Iraq parliament after vote

The political movement of Iraq’s influential Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr says it has retained the biggest share of seats in the country’s parliament after elections.

“The approximate number is 73 seats,” out of the 329, a Sadrist official tells AFP, while an electoral commission official confirms that preliminary results from Sunday’s poll showed the Sadrists “in the lead.”
