The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) congratulated the Independent High Election Commission (IHEC) for the successful opening of 563 voter registration update locations across the war-torn nation. UNAMI noted that all internally displaced persons (IDPs) and Iraqis are encouraged to take part in the polls by visiting their local centre. NGOs, political parties and members of civil society have been registered as observers for the voter registration update, as the mission ?believes this is the best way to ensure transparency and credibility in this important democratic process.?
