UN Deputy Special Representative for Iraq
for Political Affairs and Electoral Assistance Alice Walpole called for the
provincial elections to be held on time.
This came during her meeting with Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament Hassan al-Kaabi in the latter's office in Baghdad.
"Working in accordance with a long partnership with the United Nations offices in Iraq is very important, and assistance should not be limited [to] specific periods as during holding the elections," Kaabi said, according to a statement.
Kaabi said that the election is the outcome of a hard work, affirming the need to define a strategy for the UN support to Iraq.
