Gorran said in a press statement that in response to its invitation, the US consulate in the Kurdistan region will monitor the provincial parliamentary elections, which are set to start on Sunday.
The statement pointed out that the monitoring of the elections by the United States will reduce fraud and electoral violations by political parties.
