BAGHDAD: Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Tuesday he opposed any repeat of the May 12 parliamentary election, after allegations of electoral fraud raised political temperatures.

Parliament has demanded a nationwide recount of votes, drawing calls for the election to be re-run. Abadi said only the Supreme Court could decide whether to re-run the vote, which was won by a bloc headed by Shi'ite scholar Moqtada al-Sadr.
