Return of IDPs, IMIS exit preconditions set for holding election - IFC

Displaced Iraqis

The return of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) to their districts and expulsion of the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) from Sunni districts are two preconditions set on Sunday by the Iraqi Forces Coalition (IFC) for holding the parliamentary election on time.  

In a press statement, Leqaa Wardi, an IFC MP, said that most Sunni forces stress on the importance of creating appropriate conditions for holding the upcoming local and parliamentary elections. This requires the return of IDPs to their districts, she noted.   

IFC believes that western governorates do not have a sufficient capacity to take part in the upcoming election at the security, political and technical levels, she further stated. 

Salahuddin, Anbar and Nineveh governorates cannot take part in the upcoming parliamentary elections, she said, adding that IFC discussed this issue with international organizations, the UN and the US. ".

On Friday, the displacement and migration parliamentary committee revealed that the government is capable of returning all (IDPs) to their districts before holding the upcoming elections. 

Earlier, Nineveh MPs have called for delaying the general elections until the displaced return to their homes.
