Baghdad, 12 March 2017 – The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) seeks to rectify an inaccurate statement attributed to one of the Commissioners of the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC), as quoted in the Al Mada newspaper on 18 February 2017, claiming that UNAMI is part of a committee together with IHEC and Baghdad University that reviewed and nominated companies for the procurement of electronic ballot boxes. UNAMI wishes to emphasize that it is not part of such a committee, nor has it been involved in the nomination of companies participating in IHEC electronic ballot boxes’ procurement. This is a process that UNAMI considers to be in the sole remit of IHEC as an Iraqi institution, and it is expected to implement any procurement in accordance with Iraq’s own procurement regulations.
