An Iranian lawmaker said the upcoming parliamentary elections in Iraq could be a turning point toward more stability and prosperity for a nation still trying to get rid of the remnants of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group.
Fatemeh Zolqadr told ICANA in a recent talk that "the parliamentary elections, if held in a transparent way and with the participation of all ethnic and political groups, could lead to stability and progress in Iraq."
Iraq's parliamentary elections were set for May 12 following a heated debate over efforts to delay them. This will be the first elections since the defeat of IS and reconstruction efforts are a key focus for the current government as more than one million people return to communities demolished after years of fighting.
