Iraq elections: Manual recount to begin on Tuesday
The recount of Iraq’s disputed election has yet to begin, but in the interim, the mandate for the Council of Representatives – Iraq’s legislature – has expired, triggering a constitutional crisis.
The mandate for Iraq’s parliament has expired – with no new leadership confirmed.
The country’s still waiting for the results of a manual recount of suspect ballots from last month’s election.
That’s due to get under way in some regions on Tuesday and will take about two weeks – leaving Iraq in political limbo.
Al Jazeera’s Mohamed Vall explains.
