EU/Irak — Statement about Iraqi elections

State­ment by HR Cather­ine Ash­ton on the pub­li­ca­tion of the cer­ti­fied results of the Iraqi elec­tions Cather­ine Ash­ton, the High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Union for For­eign Affairs and Secu­ri­ty Pol­i­cy and Vice-Pres­i­dent of the Com­mis­sion, made the fol­low­ing state­ment:

“I wel­come the for­mal cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of the 7 March elec­tion results by the Fed­er­al Supreme Court pub­lished on 1 June 2010 in Iraq.

The EU looks for­ward to the Coun­cil of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives meet­ing short­ly, in accor­dance with the Con­sti­tu­tion, and to the rapid for­ma­tion of a sta­ble gov­ern­ment, allow­ing Iraq to con­front the chal­lenges ahead. The EU con­tin­ues to sup­port Iraq in its efforts to recon­struct the coun­try and to build and con­sol­i­date a demo­c­ra­t­ic polit­i­cal sys­tem. I look for­ward to work­ing with the new Gov­ern­ment and Coun­cil of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and reit­er­ate our com­mit­ment to a long term part­ner­ship.

I would like to com­mend the work of the Inde­pen­dent High Elec­toral Com­mis­sion and oth­er Iraqi insti­tu­tions who have con­tributed to this process.”
