Various of al-Sadr entering polling station, casting vote, showing inked finger STORYLINE: Influential Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr on Saturday cast his vote in the first national election since the declaration of victory over the Islamic State group (IS). No clear front-runner has emerged after weeks of official campaigning as Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi faces stiff competition from political parties with closer ties to Iran. The vote - the fourth since the 2003 US-led overthrow of Saddam Hussein - will be conducted electronically for the first time to reduce fraud. Al-Sadr has always opposed US and British operations in Iraq since the fall of Hussein. Polling centres have been set up for many of the country's 2 million people who remain displaced by the war against IS. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
