6:06 pm
i think the protest yesterday was a factor, but i would not say a deciding factor. these names these people had all been interviewed long in the past and he had assembled them. it seems as though it's very early days, a fairly reasonable team. results from iraq's parliamentary elections are being released shortly. the election commission has declared initial results in several regions. the turn out for the vote on sunday was roughly about 41 percent. that is the lowest percentage since sadam. hussein was toppled in 2003 that the mid adar models on i didn't follow the yeah, these are preliminary results and depend on what data has been referred to the commission. the commission is investigating some of the ballot boxes where there have been a few problems, and these will be transport to the national center to mora. well, we have to correspondence in the rocky capital baghdad. alhashan has been speaking to people on the streets of iraq capital live before we talked to him. first to mcmurry, abdullah whitehead,
6:07 pm
who's keeping an eye for us on the results are mark mood. what are we to make of such a low percentage turn out? will peter, it definitely reflect this. how people are not agreeing with the political parties are running for this a parliament as you know, only it 10 provinces have presented their turn out and results. emily reserves s as over yet. now it's 6 p. m a but dead lucas, i'm this is the time it is the deadline for the results to be announced today according to the election, low air from air 6 p. m. yesterday until 6 pm. today, 24 hours, it there period, given a for the national election commission to an hour, say the, it is us. but as of yet, this prison has not a started yet, the presser were a head of the high national election commission, is supposed to announce the results at, in old cases, these results are not final,
6:08 pm
meaning that this is just initial results, and they could be subjected to verification or objection, as you know that are by virtue of the election law, the older is, it's a should go through the federal court and the federal court might receive the objections might receive the appeals. it might take several days until we have a final endorse had results certified by the federal court, but concerning the turnout. it's very low by, according to estimations. from what all are observers here up, but that was the least with 32. turn out the whole was the 1st, was it 54 percent. turn out due to hook in, in could this region and the loss. but in all cases, the whole electron process it reflects at some kind of a dis,
6:09 pm
illusion. this illusion meant with the people disillusionment, especially with the opposition, with the boy cutters. and remember, this is one of the top demands of the revolution. the election daily election was one of the top demands of the revolution that outside, for a former prime minister added, added maddie, that's called that the sri revolution. but the irony is, the irony is, at this parliamentary election has been rejected by the same revolutionaries have called earlier for this election. they say that because they believe the election is not going to bring what they hope for because it has been dominated by the same the same old political parties. mcmurry, thanks very much. the moment mcmurry abdulla, they're talking to was out of baghdad. we'll get to alhashan, and other of our corresponds just a moment. we are expecting those absolutely final results. mackwood was saying that the results kind of trickle out between 6 pm and 6 pm. a local times we are
6:10 pm
expecting from that location is inside that the government building in the iraqi capital, the definitive percentage turn out the vote, results region by region, city by city. as soon as we know those final definitive results, we'll bring them to you live here. on the news hour, we should be getting a good sense of where those percentages and all the numbers are stacking up in the next few minutes. alhashan joins us up from the rocky capital as well. and it, you spent a lot of time today on the streets. what's the mood like amongst the voters, particularly those young people who seem to feel more disaffected than their, their parents generation. i guess what with of the iraq is freed, resembles everything in it off. it's just like the one of the calls back from lot else divisions, even among the youth. there are those lot of half feet. you see the election coming out with this low turnout. there are out of those who are anticipating that kind of
6:11 pm
big 34 independent candidates that are going goes a lot and really happy with the whole system and everything that's happening. for example, right now, we are at the higher to spread over it. as we know, this is the place where the demonstrations, the protests during the 2019 uprising were taking place. this is the same place where many of those groups who are thieves, have preliminary results, and they feel that they're having that kind of an advance on all the groups are going to celebrate that it's up. there is something that blan over here in like the coming minutes. what i was, the supporters of more of a sudden, i'm going to fill this square and send it, but a their, their own victory as they call it. because, because the moment a preliminary results the out, i thought i had to other groups in the southern provinces,
6:12 pm
on the southern provinces all the she are strong hold on, you know, that iraq, i mean, a main part of your on she asked you have cindy's on the card so and the in the main she are areas of the south will cover. so that is needing the after him, that are supporters off the former prime minister, laurie medicaid. and all so many independent candidates are showing off in the, in the list as a new the new members will follow will the selection at a change the, the composition of the iraqi parliament. well, it seems that there is going to be a, a spur. the results were hitting and he has these, these are preliminary retinal. now we're sitting waiting for my dad. we're still waiting for the other bigger provinces such as possible. so just nina,
6:13 pm
of it. these are the ones who are going to give us a kind of a picture of the future color. but given what we are hearing, the indications are that is going to be a big blog may be the one that is that bible study. saw that this is at least for now and get out going to be other small blocks. now, what's, what's going to happen in the coming weeks is that despite the fact that it is a big block, this, this big block doesn't have the majority that gives it that chinese food. but it got a prime minister to back it prime minister and devote of confidence. so this issue, this issue is going to cause a kind of situation. what are the same groups will have to sit and talk together and agree on the new prime minister. what it. busy is the same one who is right,
6:14 pm
not the prime minister, that off job, a suffolk, foggy me, or any other prime minister who they might choose. how many, thanks, any hash them keep us posted. we'll come back to later. i'm sure that's bringing. and he and body, he's a political analyst. he joins us on skype early on body. if the turner is indeed 41 percent with perhaps even lower variations in certain areas in regions than that 41 percent threshold figure. does the government such as it will become, have much credibility? well, 1st let's discuss if it is for to fun. if it is a $4.00 to $1.00, really because this is a deceiving factor, it is 41 percent of those who have for just a commission. while there are millions of iraqis will have not registered and updated the election cards for this is for 2nd of those 41 percent presumed by the electoral commission. there are many who have not really
6:15 pm
made any sort of election. they just throw their election cards inside the boxes without any election of any candidate. so they don't count and they were included in the percentage. but generally speaking, yes, iraqis feel and different about this election more even than the election of 2018. they don't trust the electoral process, they don't trust the political parties. they believe that the conditions for, for the entangled election is not a political money. and those weapons malicious are all these forces and play a big role in directing people towards electing the current political parties. so people do not trust the internal process. period is one of the biggest issues here, understandably,
6:16 pm
for the electorate. these allegations of corruption inasmuch as one of the analysts we spoke to here on the news on al jazeera at this time yesterday was seeing this, allegedly, the allegations of corruption. you know, corruption is the lubricant. that was the main claim from that analyst. it is the main lubricant of iraqi politics. so when iraqi politicians say we will rid our political system of corruption, they're never going to do it voluntarily because if they did it, they'd have to sac themselves. absolutely. i totally. i knew you with. ready your analyst to, i mean, iraq is the most corrupted country i believe, although it's not in the, in the last position, but is the most corrupted country taking in concentration. the amount of resources available for this country and the oil revenue was so the income generated of corruption for electric. politicians is huge. and
6:17 pm
a lot of that is used in the election process, which does not give a fair chance for independence. people for new political and they would like to maintain power one way or another, so that that corruption level and the iraqi government. we will not to trust any kind of election to bring her and yoga government to serve the people. very briefly, mr. amber, if you can, are we heading into at least a period of political horse training, perhaps a period of more demonstrations on the streets? it's quite expected. a d calls for a new demonstration on october 25th this year. in order to remember the 2019 october 25th for. ready pricing or evaluation,
6:18 pm
whatever you want to call it. the same groups youngsters who have been for 2019 uprising still feel marginalized, not involved in the political process. and they don't really think that the election has fulfilled their needs. ok, you'll keep us company. i know over the coming hours as we get these final results coming through to us, but i'm boarding for the moment. thank you very much. you're welcome. the rocky prime minister says i saw a finance chief has been captured in the stopper. alchemy says iraqi security forces captured sammy just seem outside iraq's borders without giving any more details. to see was a deputy to the former. i saw a leader abaca alba, dadi, who died in 2019 lost more still to come for you here on the news are including a crackdown in indian administered kashmir. 700 people are arrested after
