Iraq holds its first parliamentary election since IS defeat

Iraqis vote Saturday in the first parliamentary election since the country declared victory over the Islamic State extremist group, ABC News reported.

The balloting is expected to be a referendum on Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's tenure and his pledge to be more inclusive of Iraq's Sunni minority.

There are 329 seats at stake, with nearly 7,000 candidates from dozens of different political alliances.
