Why is the counting so slow?

Wouldn't it cast some aspersions on the validity of the results?

Unfortunately this is because the results have been tampered with. Everyone knows there is no way that Allawi could muster this many votes and various points have been raised to question this whole election. And if the Shi'as lose out should Allawi "win" and decide on the form of government then we have Mr Maliki to thank. This is because it was he who decided to split the Shi'a coalition and therefore risk this eventuality. Had the UIA maintained their unity then there would be no doubt about their retaining their power after these elections due to a single and united vote.

It is time for Maliki and the so called anti-religion people to feel the heat...Now even if he wins, he must understand that how important is to not fall for Saudi-Zionist propaganda to label their own brothers as Persian Empire's pawns etc.. and keep them away from themselves to look more like a fool patriotic. Just imagine what might happened if Sadrists also announced their loyalty with Allawi's group just before the election.

There may have been some rigging of the votes in some ballots. Certainly the saudi monarchy paid a lot of money into this election. They bought iyad allawi for a cheap price.

Another thing is that shia in the south also voted for iyad allawi, in significant numbers. This is the main reason why allawi has a high vote turn out. While maliki got next to nothing in the sunni provinces.

The Shia voter turnout was disappointingly low. I don't blame them for being disillusioned, but at the end of the day, they only hurt themselves by not turning up. 337 could have come out clean ahead of everyone else if the Shia had come out as strong as Kurds or Sunni Arabs.

I hope Maliki can take the PM position again.

He is going to take the PM position....But, it this election was a good wake-up call... The enemies of your country and the enemies of Shias divided them very well... They labeled some of them as Iranian loyalists, some as secular and nationalists, and some as good independent people.... reduced the importance of religious clerics and gave people the idea of whoever is an 'anti-Shia or anti-Irani is the good Iraqi'... The goal in the last 3 years has been to bring back the Baathists to power and then hand them over all security and Iraq's revenues..(the mission = dividing the Shias and uniting the Baathists and attaching some Shias and Kurds with the Baathists). ;- )

The reason for the low turnout could be because of disunity amongst Shias in their provinces!
