[size=52]International report: The elections will take place on time despite attempts to postpone[/size]

[size=45]Translated by Hamid Ahmed[/size]
[size=45]An international report spoke of attempts by some political forces to postpone the elections, but it quoted experts as confirming that they were held on time, stressing that participation rates will be weak in a way that ensures the survival of the parties in control.[/size]
[size=45]A report by The National website, translated by (Al-Mada), stated that “Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, who took office in May 2020, has pledged to hold early elections in response to the demands of crowds of demonstrators and protesters who took to the streets in late 2019, expressing their anger and resentment against corruption government, the spread of unemployment and the lack of services.” The report added, "Al-Kazemi recently revealed that his government managed to thwart several attempts that were aimed at rigging and manipulating the elections." He pointed out, "The government, on the other hand, stands in the way of attempts by some political parties in Parliament to postpone and delay voting."[/size]
[size=45]The report indicated that "the religious leader Muqtada al-Sadr recently retracted his call to boycott the elections, and said that his current would participate in the elections to help put an end to corruption."[/size]
[size=45]He asserts, "The Sadrist movement leads the largest number of seats in parliament and has a broad mass base, but al-Sadr's reversal of his previous position is not enough to contain calls to delay and postpone the elections."[/size]
[size=45]The report quotes Renad Mansour, a researcher and director of the Iraq Initiative department at the British Gatham House Center for Studies and Research in London, as saying that "a wave of meetings has been held recently between different political parties to consider delaying the elections."[/size]
[size=45]Mansour continued, according to the report, that "a decision has been taken regarding the elections to be held on time, and although this has not been officially confirmed 100%, those initial attempts to delay the elections have been left aside."[/size]
[size=45]The report continues, "Researcher Mansour believes that the Sadrists were the ones who refused to participate in the elections and demanded that they be postponed. Nevertheless, the office of the religious authority Ali al-Sistani and other international actors were pushing for holding the elections on time."[/size]
[size=45]The report also quotes Al-Kazemi’s former advisor, Fanar Haddad, as saying that “there is sufficient will and desire on the part of most of the major political actors, with sufficient momentum that makes any further delay attempt unachievable.”[/size]
[size=45]The report stressed, "Al-Kazemi's advisor confirmed that election campaigns have started and money is being spent in this regard," and continues, that "diplomats also expressed their hope that the elections will go ahead as planned." According to the report, "a Western diplomat confirmed that the elections will be held on time, and that all major political parties are currently present in the electoral arena, and there is no reason for delay." And he added, "The United Nations Special Envoy to Iraq, Jeanine Plasschaert, said that the political parties themselves have a role to ensure that the electoral process runs smoothly." However, the report added, “Experts, on the other hand, expected a low voter turnout next October; This is due to the lack of confidence in the country’s electoral system, and their belief that the elections will not achieve the required radical changes that they have promised since 2003.”[/size]
[size=45]He stated, "Researcher Mansour said that the new young generation, who are the least part of the social base of political parties, do not, in fact, find the goal they seek through voting. They do not have confidence that these political parties represent their basic interests or needs.”[/size]
[size=45]The report stressed that “Mansour spoke about a feeling in the Iraqi capital of a lack of response to the political process and voting, and that these elections represent for the Iraqi youth class to vote for the same team of personalities and political parties that, for 20 years, have not been able to provide any service for the public interest nor management Good for the government and no accountability for the corrupt.” The report added, "Former advisor Haddad stated that voter apathy is still an important problem in Iraq, and that these parliamentary elections will be the sixth after 2003, and many Iraqis have lost confidence in the elections' ability to achieve change." Haddad expects, according to the report, that “the low turnout will naturally create a self-fulfilling prophecy that will benefit the existing political elites and ensure that the situation remains as it is.” The report goes back to the Western diplomat, who said, "Improvements have taken place in the electoral process, which included a new election law and active participation by the Electoral Commission." The report went on, "The diplomat considered these elections more sedate, as they made improvements to the process, but people need to be persuaded to accept it and vote."[/size]
