Iyad AllawiA spokesman for the secular Iraqiya slate has said that the Iraqi political alliance by two leading Shiite coalitions was orchestrated by Iran.

It was reported that the Iraqiya slate of former interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi won a narrow victory over the State of Law coalition of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in March 7 elections for the Iraqi Council of Representatives. Neither party secured the 163 seats needed to unilaterally form a government in the 325-member council, however.
