SULAIMANI — Iraq's Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) said on Friday (April 16) that it invited 75 Arab and foreign embassies and international organizations to monitor the parliamentary elections scheduled for October 10.

Spokesperson for the commission Jumana al-Ghalai told the state-run Iraqi News Agency that the commission has “come a very long way” in its preparations and it is impossible to return to the beginning.

Regarding calls for it to also hold elections for provincial councils, which has not happened since 2013, he said that the preparations were not there to hold them at the same time.
