Iraq votes in first parliamentary election since mass protests – BBC News

Iraqis are voting in the first parliamentary elections since mass protests over corruption, unemployment and poor services erupted in 2019.

The poll had been due next year but was brought forward by six months in response to the unrest, during which hundreds of people were killed.

The old electoral system based on party lists has also been replaced with one meant to help independent candidates.
