Al-Kaabi’s office said in a statement received by Shafaq News Agency, "the latter received in his office the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Iraq, Jeanine Hennis Plasschaert, in the presence of Representative Enas Al-Maksousi. In the meeting, they discussed the cooperation between Iraq, the United Nations, and the electoral team in the mission in the file of the parliamentary elections."
Al-Kaabi added, "the Council of Representatives, in the coming days, will proceed to vote on the remaining articles of the Federal Supreme Court bill to eliminate the main obstacle withholding the early elections in the country, especially since the constitution limits the right to validate election results to the Federal Supreme Court."
"Early elections must be held on the scheduled date, as it is a popular demand. The majority of the political blocs agreed to complete all preparations and requirements related to conducting them on the date set by the government on October 10 of this year."
The deputy speaker called on the UN mission and all political forces to "cooperate with the members of the commission (High Electoral Commission) and provide all possible facilities to it away from political conflicts."
For her part, Plasschaert expressed "the mission's readiness to fully coordinate with the legislative and executive authorities and the committees in charge of the election file, and harness all capabilities that would lead to the success of all stages of the electoral process.".
