UN Envoy expresses deep concern about the postponement of elections in Anbar and Ninewa

Baghdad, 20 March 2013 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Martin Kobler expresses deep concern about the decision to postpone the Governorate Council elections in the provinces of Anbar and Ninewa.


"There is no democracy without elections, Kobler said. The citizens of these provinces are looking forward to these elections with great hope. They should not be disappointed".


As IHEC is continuing the technical preparation for Governorate Council elections in all 14 provinces, the United Nations calls upon the government and IHEC to ensure elections can take place as scheduled in a peaceful and secure environment.
