IHEC calls on political blocs, coalitions to submit their candidates
Iraqi Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) has called on political blocs, coalitions, and parties to submit their lists of candidates between 4/1/2018 to 10/2/2018, Riyadh al-Badran, the head of the electoral department at the IHEC, said on Sunday.

He added that the IHEC continues receiving the lists to take the appropriate measures according to Iraqi law.

Earlier, IHEC has approved 27 political coalitions, including 143 parties while there are other parties which will contest the elections independently. 

On Saturday, Iraqi MPs were secretly voting on the date of upcoming elections.

On Thursday, 148 MPs have called for voting on the date of upcoming elections to become confidential, Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri said.

Many political blocs and parties rejected the elections to be held as scheduled by next May.
