SRSG Mladenov congratulates all Iraqis and IHEC for a successful Election Day

Baghdad, 1 May 2014 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Nickolay Mladenov, congratulates all Iraqis who have shown incredible resilience by turning out in significant numbers on Election Day to vote. Mr. Mladenov also commends the efforts made by the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) in ensuring these elections were entirely Iraqi owned, as well as the dedication of security personnel across the country. 

 

“The elections were prepared in a professional manner”, Mr. Mladenov stated. “However, the election process is not over yet, and I call on all political entities to refrain from such actions and statements that may influence IHEC”, he further said. 

“Now that the counting process has begun, I strongly encourage IHEC to provide the polling stations and recount results to the party agents, which will only increase the credibility and transparency of the process”, Mr. Mladenov highlighted.
