Tammuz Organization participates in dialogue seminar on amendments to provincial elections law

 On Friday night 31/5/2019, at the Uruk hall in Babylon International Hotel and  represented by our colleague Vian Al-sheikh Ali, Tammuz Organization for Social Development participated in the seminar  organized by the International Republican Institute in cooperation with the Independent Electoral Commission in Iraq on the proposed amendments to the law of provincial elections submitted by the Commission to the parliament to vote,  it was attended by the President and members of the Board of Commissioners , a number of MPs , representatives of parties and political movements , civil society organizations, and civil activists involved in the electoral issue.  The President of the Council praised attendees and also spoke about the importance of this partnership with all organizations and parties in the country and the necessity of sustaining them in order to create an atmosphere that would give positive results in building mutual trust among the democratic process parties. Mr. Karim al-Tamimi talked about the preparations of the Commission to hold the provincial elections if the Parliament finished voting on the amendments submitted by the Commission to it and said that the biggest challenge we face today is not to set an official date for the upcoming elections and this is negatively reflected on the schedule and timing of preparation which had been set by the Independent High Electoral Commission to obtaining satisfactory results. "Despite all these difficulties, Al-Tamimi added, “the Commission continues to update the voter register and biometric registration through registration centers throughout the country as well as its mobile teams to reach the most possible point and  register as many voters as possible,". He also spoke about the displaced persons' issue and said that the government and all the partners in the political process should bear part of this and not leave the Commission alone, because it has a political and humanitarian side and needs a firm stance to end this thorny issue. Mr. Hazem Al-Ridini spoke about the importance of the acceleration device of obtaining  results used in the previous elections and how to count  votes and the experiences of utilizing  this technology in the parliamentary  elections 2018 and demanded the cancellation of the decision not to work on technical  devices adopted by the previous Council. Mr. Al-Ridini oversaw a process that simulated voting in front of the attendees on the device in question and clarified many of the ambiguities that were entrenched in the minds of voters.

The Deputy Chairman of the Legal Committee in the House of Representatives, Mr. Mohamed al-Ghazi, spoke about the great role adopted by the Commission to put forward views and proposals in the amendments to the provincial council law that would achieve balance and justice between the contenders in line with the Iraqi Constitution and the laws in force. He added that parliament is serious about ending the issue of the provincial elections law and setting a deadline for it to allow sufficient time for the Commission to complete its procedures for that.   Mr. Mohammed Al-Khafaji, representative of the NGO Department in the Council of Ministers, spoke about the importance and role of these organizations in crystallizing the decisions and visions presented by satisfying them with extensive discussions with all parties as an important and essential partner in society. The Electoral Commission has organized several seminars and educational workshops that contribute to the definition of the provincial elections law and its proposed amendments in cooperation with partners of the political process in the country.
