Huqooq Movement objects to the UN Security Council's statement regarding the elections

Shafaq News/ The Huqooq Movement affiliated with the Shiite Coordination Framework rejected on Friday the UN Security Council's statement, which praised the efforts of the caretaker government and its success in holding the parliamentary elections

the spokesperson for the Movement, Ali Fadlallah, told Shafaq News Agency, "The statement of the UN Security Council regarding the elections and its praise of the efforts of the Commission is expected because the position of the United Nations representative in Iraq (UNAMI) was not neutral."

He added that UNAMI gave the Council an "image that elections were fair and transparent," adding that "The coordination Framework will take a position on the UN statement."

"Our Movement objects to this non-neutral statement; it was supposed to wait for the final results after being approved by the Federal Court. The objection of the political class and the street confirms that there is a major breach and monopoly in the election results."

Fadlallah said, "There will be national, legal, and popular responses because the timing of the statement is provocative when we are waiting for the appeals to be resolved."

The coordination framework of the Shiite forces announced its total rejection of the election results on Saturday.

Earlier, the gathering said in a statement, "We hoped that the Electoral Commission would correct the major violations it committed during and after counting the votes and announcing the results."

"After its insistence on the results, we announce our total rejection of these results."

The Framework held the Commission "full responsibility for the failure of the electoral process and its mismanagement, which will negatively affect the democratic path and societal reconciliation."

For its part, The UN Security Council congratulated the Iraqi people and the Government on the occasion of the latest elections, held on 10 October.
