Baghdad The Parliamentary Human Rights Committee affirmed: “The continued rule of uncontrolled weapons will lead to a lack of public conviction in the upcoming elections.”
The head of the committee, Arshad Al-Salihi, said in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA): “The continuation of criminal operations without a quick government response will lead to the citizen’s lack of conviction in the elections.”
He added, “The continued control of uncontrolled weapons in the street will lead to weakness and lack of participation in the elections, and the government must eliminate this weapon in order to participation in the upcoming elections with transparency.”
The past few days have witnessed the return of assassinations, which resulted in the assassination of an activist in Karbala, the serious injury of a journalist in Diwaniyah, and other incidents.
