Partial Vote Count in Iraq

Early results from Iraq's parliamentary elections show Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in the lead in Baghdad, though allegations of fraud and demands to publish voting results have already been made, CNN said.

Al-Maliki's State of Law alliance may have the lead in the capital province, but only 10 of the 18 provinces have given preliminary results, CNN said.

Following behind al-Maliki's 159,000 votes is the Shiite Iraqi National Alliance with 108,000, Voice of America News said.

With only about 20 percent of the votes in Baghdad counted, it is unclear who will win the seats, Voice of America said.

Baghdad holds that most parliamentary seats, 68 of the total 325.
