         The IHEC Spokesperson and Member of the Board of Commissioners (BoC), Mr. Safaa al Mosawi declared on 5 February that the BoC has excluded 69 candidates from running for the upcoming Iraqi parliamentary elections scheduled on 30 April 2014 after auditing the criminal restrictions of the candidates based on the data returned from the Ministry of the Interior.

    Mr. al Mosawi said that the decision was taken based on the legal provisions in effect.

The IHEC reserved its right to mention the names and will inform their political entities on the need to replace these names with new one within three days from the date of notification.

The     IHEC has sent the lists of names of all male and female candidates which amounted to 9,364 names to the
the Accountability and Justice Commission. The IHEC has sent these names to the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of High Education and Scientific Research for the purpose of auditing and ratifying them to check that they are not included with the measures taken by these Ministries as part of preparations to run the upcoming Iraqi parliamentary elections scheduled on 30 April 2014.
