    Partial results of Iraq election expected




    Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraq's election commission is expected Thursday to announce partial results of last week's vote.

    But even if an announcement comes it may be some time before a clear picture emerges on who will lead Iraq and if current prime minister Nuri al-Maliki will stay in power.

    Iraq's Independent High Electoral Commission is expected to release the preliminary results Thursday. Those results are based on the count of at least 30 percent of votes from each of Iraq's 18 provinces.

    Final results, that need to be certified by Iraq's Supreme Federal Court, are expected to be released at the end of the month. Millions of Iraqis defied the threat of violence Sunday to cast ballots in the parliamentary elections.

    Nearly two out of three eligible voters turned out. Some 38 people were killed in attacks on voting day. About 6,200 candidates from more than 80 political entities are vying for 325 seats in the Council of Representatives, as Iraq's parliament is called.

    The political coalition that ends up with the most number of seats in parliament will put forward a candidate for prime minister.

    The State of Law political bloc, led by Maliki, is one of three coalitions that were in the lead, local observers said.

    The other two are - Al-Iraqia a secular line up led by former interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi and the Iraqi National Alliance (INA) an Iranian backed grouping of some of the country's main Shiite religious parties.
