Baghdad Kurdish MP Salim Hamza confirmed that some political forces are seeking to postpone the elections and keep the current government for further notice.
He told the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA) that some political forces do not want the elections to be held on time and are making every effort to postpone them in light of the continuation of assassinations and the unstable security environment.
Hamza added that it is certain that the elections will not be held in an atmosphere of assassinations and the absence of security, indicating that the targeting of activists is a clear message to postpone them and the survival of this government until further notice. He described this as a dangerous gesture.
He explained that if the targeting continues unchecked, it will move from targeting activists to prominent politicians, and the government must take decisive measures to end it in order to create an atmosphere for holding early elections on time.
