    Cool Rival edges ahead of Iraq PM in overall vote count

    1 hr 18 mins ago

    Incumbent Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's State of Law coalition is still winning in seven of Iraq's 18 provinces, compared with five for Allawi's Iraqiya alliance. That's significant because seats in the 325-member parliament are allotted by province.

    Still, Allawi's slight nationwide lead reflects strong support for him in the ethnically mixed Diyala province and among some Sunnis in Baghdad. The Shiite politician has forged alliances with Sunnis
