On 9 July 2018, the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General (DSRSG) for Iraq for Political Affairs and Electoral Assistance, Alice Walpole, visited the recount centre in Baghdad to assess progress made in conducting the partial manual recount of votes from the 12 May national elections.

Welcomed by the judges assigned to oversee the centre, DSRSG Walpole observed some of the recount process for Iraq’s six southernmost governorates and met recount staff, political party agents and observers. She also spoke with the United Nations electoral experts who are watching the entire process.

Ms Walpole reiterated UNAMI's commitment to provide assistance to the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) and its Board of Judges in completing an orderly, professional and transparent recount process.
