THREAD: I am on-the-ground in Erbil for the #iraqielections2021. I feel my Iraqi heritage - & these elections - strongly today: the photo is of my great-grandfather, who many years ago was MP for Basra.

I've been looking the elections for a while & also work with sources on the ground, relevant organisations & - where possible - speak to government officials. Hopefully the picture that emerges is as accurate as can be. Critically it's informed by Iraqis who actually live here.
Polls opened at 7am local time (4 hours ago). The Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) says voting is going smoothly and free from political or militia pressure (let's see...) The last few weeks has witnessed a typically fraught election period & "intense" campaigning.
