Iraq's Supreme Court on Tuesday ratified the results of the March general election, clearing the way for a faster pace to government formation talks which remain in limbo.

The ruling confirms initial results released in late March that put the former Premier, Iyad Allawi's Iraqiya bloc in the lead, followed closely by Prime Minister Nuri al—Maliki's State of Law alliance.

Iraqiya won 91 seats in the Iraq's 325—member Parliament, followed by State of Law with 89. — AFP
