Iraqi lawmaker Jassem Mohamed al-Bayati announced on Thursday that Iraqi parliament will vote on provincial elections law during next Monday's session.

The parliament reached a settlement on the provincial election law's tripwires, foremost of which is the Turkmen's demand to have their own law, he said. 

On Jan 17 Iraqi Premier Haidar al-Ibadi announced that 16 September, 2017 will be the date for organizing provincial council's elections.

He called the Iraqi Election Commission to make its preparations for "fair elections".
