Iran congratulates Iraq on holding successful parliamentary elections

The spokesman of Iran’s Foreign Ministry congratulated the Iraqi government and people on the successful parliamentary elections held in that country on Monday.

Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed hope in a message that with the consensus and sympathy of the new Iraqi lawmakers, “we will witness formation of a new government.”

He further reiterated Iran’s “support for Iraq, like before, to cooperate in a way that will lead to the growth and development of both countries."

According to the Independent High Electoral Commission of Iraq, 41 percent of the eligible Iraqi voters have participated in the parliamentary elections, iranpress.com reported.

It was the sixth elections held in Iraq since the fall of former dictator Saddam Hussein after the US-led invasion of the country in 2003.

The elections recognize 329 members of the Iraqi Council of Representatives who will, in turn, elect the Iraqi President and confirm the Prime Minister.
