IHEC has requested the UN to support national electoral observer networks during the Electoral Events of Iraq 2009 - 2010.

Over the next 8 months three major electoral events are scheduled. The first are the Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in the Kurdistan Region which will take place on the 25th July 2009. The second event is the Voter Registration Update (VRU) scheduled for August 2009 in all governorates of Iraq as a preparation for the third electoral event, the Iraq Parliamentary Elections in January 2010.

In order to prevent the perception of a conflict of interest between the UN’s assistance to the IHEC and the independent observer groups, all support for the electoral observers is implemented through international partner organisations (FES, ACHRS) who will coordinate, jointly with their local NGO network partners, the training sessions and mobilisation of 7,000 Observers for the Kurdistan Elections, the mobilisation of 4,900 Observers for the VRU and the training and deployment of 29,200 Observers for the Iraq Parliamentary Elections.

UNAMI/Electoral Support will be responsible for technical supervision and monitoring (trainings and observer reports). UNOPS will be in charge of financial management (incl. procurement, legal, monitoring).
