Shafaq News / The Iraqi government pledged to hold "early" elections.
In a response to a question by Shafaq news News reporters, the government spokesman, Ahmed Mulla Talal, said, "The government will guide the country to early elections at all costs".
The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, announced last Friday that the parliamentary elections will be held on 6 June 2021, pledging to provide international control over the electoral process.
Al-Kadhimi's announcement of the date of the elections was welcomed by the international community that pledged to work for its success. However, the positions of the political blocs are still vague and divided over the date and the mechanism of elections.
