A group of 130 experts and some 600 support staff will supervise the elections, according to UNAMI head Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert.

The elections will be held a year earlier to meet demands from protesters who ousted former Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi’s Government in November 2019.

Hennis-Plasschaert announced that additional measures will be adopted to prevent electoral fraud such as confiscating voter cards after use and disabling them for 72 hours.

A total of 3,249 candidates run in Iraq’s elections, to reach 329 seats in Parliament.

Each constituency will put three to five seats at stake, with a quota designed to elect female candidates.
