    Baghdad - Journal News
    Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is facing "Sunni" political pressure to bring about 2 million displaced people back into their areas, which Iraqi forces have restored from a militant organization, the London-based Al Arab newspaper reported in a report.
     Sunni politicians believe that the return of the displaced is a prerequisite for the success of Iraq's planned elections in May 2018.
    "A large part of the population of the Nineveh, Diyala, Salah al-Din and northern Babel regions are still abandoned," parliamentarians said, referring to "logistical problems that prevent elections."
    Ninewa MP Ahmad al-Jarba said the Sunni political forces told Abadi that she would boycott the elections if the displaced could not return to their areas by the end of this month.
    Vice President Osama al-Nujaifi and parliament speaker Salim al-Jubouri, who asked the US administration last month, during two separate visits to the United States, to postpone the Iraqi elections, at least one year, so that Sunni refugees can return to their areas.
    "About two million displaced people in the newly restored cities and governorates of the Sunnis have not been able to return to their homes so far, and they are still in very desperate and desperate humanitarian situations," said MP Ahmad al-Masari.
    "Elections can not be held under these circumstances, if the displaced are not returned to their areas," he said. "Elections at the time the government spoke on (May 15, 2018) will not give real representation to these provinces, whether in parliament or provincial councils. "He said.
    "It is important to address the issues that hinder the success of the elections on time, including the presence of armed groups linked to influential parties in the areas of the displaced," said MP Salah al-Jubouri, a leader of the Sunni-led coalition in the Iraqi parliament.
    "There are very large numbers of displaced people who have not been able to return," said MP Ahmad al-Masari. "For example, all the displaced people in Jarf al-Sakhr district, north of Babil Province, are no longer with them."
    But the Sunni demand for postponement of the elections collides with the rejection of an American and an American public.
    The UN Special Representative for Iraq, Jan Kubic, said last week that "the position of the United Nations, which refuses to postpone the election date is clear," stressing "respect for the Constitution and the holding of elections on time."
    "We will provide technical support to hold elections on time," he said, adding that "the United Nations will provide all the appropriate conditions to support Iraqis to participate in the elections."
    Political sources in Baghdad say the UN mission in Iraq is continuing with the election commission to provide ballot papers for displaced people if they can not return to their areas by May 2018.
    For his part, the US ambassador in Baghdad, Douglas Suleiman, "the Iraqi elections must be held on time."
    According to political sources informed in Baghdad to the "Arabs" that "the Sunni political forces did not touch enough seriousness in Abadi on resolving the file of the displaced."
    The sources pointed out that "the suspension of the future elections on the return of displaced people does not concern Abadi much, as postponing it will allow the Prime Minister, monopolization of the political arena, after the end of the legal mandate of the Iraqi parliament, at its current session.
