SRSG Kubiš congratulates Iraqi political parties for signing Electoral Charter of Honour

Baghdad, 28 March 2018 – Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG) Mr. Ján Kubiš, congratulated Iraqi political parties and blocks for signing the Electoral Charter of Honour on Wednesday in Baghdad.

“The credibility of the democratic process lies in the integrity of the electoral process. Thus, an effective Charter of Honour is essential to conducting the elections in a free, fair, impartial, transparent and credible manner,” SRSG Kubiš said.

“This Charter could form the basis of a future law that could be enacted by the next elected Parliament,” he added.

“I call upon all signatories, the media, and all stakeholders involved in the electoral process to abide by the provisions of this Charter. UNAMI, as an impartial partner, stands ready to support this process,” he further added.

The Special Representative confirmed that any political party or entity which did not sign the Charter during Wednesday’s event was most welcome to do so in coming days.

“The document, for which the United Nations is acting as depository, remains open for signature,” he noted.
