Iraq Sets Parliamentary Elections for May 12
Local Editor

The Iraqi Parliament Monday set May 12 for elections, the winner of which will face the daunting tasks of rebuilding Iraq after a three-year war with Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] and a battle against entrenched corruption that is eating away at its oil revenue.


The Parliament voted in Baghdad to approve the date proposed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi who is seeking re-election, buoyed by a surge in popularity for successfully leading the war on the militants.

For their part, Sunni and Kurdish lawmakers asked for elections to be postponed, to allow the return of hundreds of thousands of displaced people to their homes, but Iraq's highest court Sunday ruled that that would run against the constitution.

The May election will decide the prime minister who will lead Iraq for the next four years, a position reserved to the Shiite Arab majority.

The personality of the prime minister will be important for Iraq to attract reconstruction funds at a conference planned for this purpose in Kuwait in February.

Baghdad says at least $100 billion will be needed to rebuild houses, businesses and infrastructure destroyed in the war.
