Iraq's Parliament
There are endeavors to postpone Iraq's parliamentary and provincial councils' elections to 2019, an Islamic Da'wah (Call) Party source revealed on Wednesday. 

The source accused parties he did not name of attempting to benefit from postponing the elections, achieving political gains and attracting a larger number of votes.   

In a press statement, the source said that there are efforts by influential figures to postpone the general, provincial and parliamentary elections.

Regional powers back this trend and different political blocs instigate it, he noted.

He added that some political parties attempt to reshuffle cards to gain more time to attract more votes.
