Washington has strongly supported the Iraqi elections in May 2018, warning that postponing them would set a dangerous precedent, undermine the constitution and harm the long-term democratic development of Iraq.

“To achieve that goal, the United States of America will provide assistance that will help ensure that Iraqi voices are heard and counted, including the voices of some 2.6 million Iraqis who are still displaced from their homes in liberated areas,” a US embassy statement said.
He added that the US Agency for International Development will help train local civil society groups to monitor the elections and provide IHEC with six international electoral advisers who will assist UNHCR to strengthen its electoral systems, staff and operations in the following ways:
• Enable internally displaced Iraqis to vote By focusing on voter registration and ensuring the effectiveness of electronic voting systems.
• Improve electoral administrative capacity at the governorate level to support the voting process in newly liberated areas.
· Assist the new Board of Commissioners of the Independent Electoral Commission to develop a sound operational plan for the May 2018 elections.

Support for Iraq’s democratic institutions is an essential part of the United States’ continued commitment to a democratic, prosperous and united federal Iraq, the statement said. By exercising their constitutional right to vote, Iraqis will demonstrate their commitment to governance through peaceful processes rather than violence.

The Iraqi parliament is pushing for postponement of the election due to pressure from Sunni forces because of the destruction of their areas because of the fighting against the eviction and displacement of more than two and a half million people.
