UN Envoy Calls on Political Forces to Reach Agreement on the Election of Speaker as Soon as Possible

Baghdad, 07 July 2014 – Over the last few days the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Nickolay Mladenov, has held discussions with a number of Iraqi political leaders and encouraged everyone to stay within the framework of the constitutional political process so that the Council of Representatives meets promptly.

 

“I received assurances about the willingness of Iraqi political leaders to seek agreement and find solutions to the current crisis within the constitutional framework.  The blocs in Parliament should limit the number of days for final negotiations, and work within constitutionally mandated timelines for the necessary nominations.  The first step is the election of a Speaker of Parliament, which should happen without unnecessary delays.  The Iraqi people and the international community are closely watching the process”, Mr. Mladenov stated.
