An employee of the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) takes part in vote counting at an analysis centre in Arbil, capital of the autonomous Kurdistan region, about 350 km (230 miles) north of Baghdad, September 22, 2013. Iraqi Kurds voted on Saturday for a new parliament that analysts said was poised to lead the oil-producing region further down the road to greater autonomy from Baghdad.
