The Iraqi Judicial Council ratified Tuesday the March 7 election results for all the Iraqi provinces, marking the first step toward forming the new Iraqi government.

In a televised press conference, the head of the Iraqi Judicial Council, Medhat al-Mahmoud, said that his council has ratified the

final results of the general parliamentary elections.

"Based on the constitution of the Republic of Iraq, we have decided to approve the final results of 2010 general elections for the membership of the Council of Representatives," al-Mahmoud said.

However, Mahmoud said the latest ratification of the results only excluded two barred candidates, one for receiving prison sentence and another for continuing serving in the military. They were from the secular Iraqia List and the Iraqi National Alliance (INA) respectively.
