UN chief calls for creating necessary conditions for Iraq poll

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday urged necessary conditions for Iraq's parliamentary elections so that all Iraqis can have their say on the future of their own country.

In a statement issued by his spokesperson on Monday night, Ban said the upcoming parliamentary elections, to be held Wednesday, mark "an important milestone in Iraq's democratic transition and can contribute to greater peace and stability in the country."

Ban welcomed the progress made by the Independent High Electoral Commission in holding these elections on time and in line with national commitments and international standards, the statement said.

Meanwhile, the UN chief strongly condemned the wave of violence and terrorist attacks that have targeted political leaders, candidates and electoral staff ahead of the elections and conveyed his deepest condolences to the families of those affected.

"He urges all political leaders and personalities to create the conditions necessary to enable all Iraqi men and women to participate in the electoral process and to have their say on the future of their country," said the statement.

More than 1 million security personnel, detainees and patients started the early voting in Iraq's parliamentary elections on Monday when a wave of attacks targeted polling stations across the country, leaving at least 20 people dead and some 50 others wounded.

The attacks are believed to be attempts to discourage the rest of the country's 22 million registered voters from going to the polls on Wednesday, in the first nationwide elections since the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country at the end of 2011.

声明说,伊拉克将于4月30日举行的国民议会选举以及库尔德自治区议会选举是伊拉克民主过渡进程中的重要里程碑,能够进一步促进国家和平与稳定。潘基文对伊拉克独立高等选举委员会在安排选举方面取得的进展表示欢迎。

声明说,潘基文强烈谴责在选举前夕针对政治领袖、候选人和选举工作人员的暴力和恐怖袭击事件,并向死伤者家属表示衷心慰问。他呼吁伊拉克各方创造必要条件,使所有伊拉克男性和女性选民得以参与选举投票。

伊拉克新一届国民议会选举28日迎来提前投票日,包括约100万名伊拉克军人和警察在内的安全部队人员、住院病人和监狱在押人员等特殊选民进行为期一天的提前投票,正式选举将于30日举行。

这是2003年伊拉克战争后的第三次议会选举,也是2011年底美军撤离后伊拉克举行的首次大选。随着议会选举日期的临近,伊拉克安全局势堪忧。包括首都巴格达在内的多个地方28日发生数起暴力袭击,造成10多人死亡、另有近50人受伤。
