Iraq – Parliamentary elections (April 30, 2014)
On the occasion of the parliamentary elections in Iraq, France commends the determination of the Iraqi voters, who, despite the terrorist threat, turned out in large numbers to express their desire to see Iraq make progress on the path towards democracy and peace. France also welcomes the fact that the ballot took place within the timeframe laid down by the constitution and following an open political campaign.
France hopes that the final results will be released shortly, in accordance with the constitutional procedures, and that a government legitimized by universal suffrage can be formed. It calls on all Iraqi political forces to work to that end, in order to respond to the political and economic challenges facing Iraq.
