We begin our tour of the Guardian newspaper with a report written by its Middle East correspondent, Martin Shuloff, on the Iraqi parliamentary elections that took place on Sunday.
Under the title "The participation rate in the Iraqi elections is about 25 percent in light of the boycott of many," he wrote that Iraqis turned out in low numbers in the elections, as many boycotted a vote "they fear that it may strengthen a political system that has failed them."
"The nationwide turnout in the sixth ballot since Saddam Hussein was toppled in 2003 is believed to be as low as about 25 percent, with the country's frustrated youth and middle classes largely staying at home," he added.
He noted that before the vote, there were widespread allegations that a vote for a political class accused of doing little to provide basic services or secure the country's citizens would preserve the status quo.
The elections were called early, in part, in response to anti-government protests in October 2019, which led to the killing of at least 600 people at the hands of government soldiers and militia members. Since then, a large number of activists have gone into exile and dozens of government critics have been killed inside Iraq.
