Polls close in Iraq’s parliamentary election after ‘low turnout’
Al Jazeera, 11 Oct 2021
Polls closed on Sunday in Iraq’s parliamentary election with a low turnout after many people lost faith in the democratic system brought in by the United States-led invasion of 2003.
The parliamentary election that drew one of the smallest turnouts on record, electoral officials indicated. It appeared to be the lowest turnout in any vote since 2003, according to election commission counts at polling stations.
