On Thursday 15th December, over 15 million Iraqis will go to the polls to vote for their favorite candidates. The calm in streets today shows that everyone wants the election to be successful.
After three years of war and violence, Iraq is going to have a new parliament.
Monday many Iraqi women took to the streets of Iraq to warn Iran not to interfere in their elections.
