The Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent His Ex­cel­lency Ma­soud Barzani con­grat­u­lated the people of Kur­dis­tan and Iraq for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the elec­tions and praised them for their high turnout and for ex­er­cis­ing their demo­cratic right to vote.

In a mes­sage, the Pres­i­dent said:" On hold­ing suc­cess­ful elec­tions for both the Iraqi Coun­cil of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion's Provin­cial Coun­cils, I con­grat­u­late the people of Kur­dis­tan, politi­cians and the Iraqi people. I spe­cially thank the po­lice and the se­cu­rity forces for en­sur­ing se­cu­rity on the elec­tion day.”

The Pres­i­dent added that both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ob­servers and in­de­pen­dent NGOs have praised this suc­cess­ful elec­tion. I hope the re­sults of this elec­tion will bring hap­pi­ness to our people and will lead to fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of democ­racy in Kur­dis­tan.

“I call on all po­lit­i­cal par­ties to ac­cept the of­fi­cial re­sults which will be an­nounced by the In­de­pen­dent High Elec­toral Com­mis­sion. I hope the re­sults will en­cour­age all sides to work to­gether and put the na­tional in­ter­ests first,” said the Pres­i­dent.
