IFC calls on UN to delay elections if IDPs don't return home

Iraqi Forces Coalition (IFC) will call on the United Nations to delay the general elections date if the internally displaced persons (IDPs) did not return to their homes, IFC MP Raad al-Dahalki said on Sunday.

He added that his bloc agreed with the National Alliance to form a joint commission to discuss the possibility of carrying out the elections in the recaptured cities.

Dahalki noted that this commission will also focus on observing the return of the IDPs to their areas before the elections date and the means to provide suitable conditions for their participation in it.

He further state that the IFC presented its demands to the Iraqi central government to set allocations for rebuilding the destroyed areas and support to the IDPs in the state budget for 2018.
