The Iraqi government has tightened its security measures after releasing the results of the country’s parliamentary elections. A coalition led by Iraq’s Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki emerged Monday as the biggest winner in the country’s first parliamentary elections since the U.S. military withdrawal in 2011, electoral officials said, as the embattled premier is seeking a third term in office despite political turmoil and rising violence.
