CALL FOR EARLY ELECTIONS IN IRAQ

Iraq: Call for early elections after the formation of a new government of technocrats

The European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) supports the formation of a technocratic government in Iraq and stresses the following two points for the establishment of peace, democracy and prosperity in this country:

First: Dismissing agents and proxies of the Iranian regime in the new composition of the government as well as in the military and security forces. This must include pro-Iran militias which have been the main force in creating tensions and sectarian war.

Second: Holding early elections under the supervision of the United Nations, with no interference and influence by the Iranian regime and its proxies.  The 2014 elections, under Nouri Al-Maliki’s jurisdiction, by no means represented the democratic will of the Iraqi people, because he was a puppet of the Iranian regime and did their bidding.
