On the 10th of October 2021, in Iraq will be held anticipated Federal Elections. A crucial moment for Iraq's political and social history, the convening of the elections follows the huge protests crossing Iraq since 2019, with thousands of Iraqi activists calling for the end of corruption, sectarianism, foreign inference, and a real strong participated democracy in Iraq.
Recalling the frauds detected in the past 2018, Iraqi civil society (ICS) is mobilizing to undertake initiatives for monitoring the whole election process, to ensure the fairness and transparency of the political and legal practices, and to do this, it will need international and institutional support.
