Fingers should be used for voting, not shooting

As members of CPT, we are grateful for having the opportunity to work as a team of international observers for the elections that took place on 30 April 2014. The following report is a summary of what our team of five volunteers observed on elections day and during the vote recount and data entry process. We present our observations with our comments for the review of the citizens of the Kurdistan Region, the rest of Iraq as well as other members of the international community. Our five observers operated in the city of Sulaimani and in the vicinity of two other towns in the Sulaimani Province. We have not published names of the places or the voting centers/schools in order to protect the safety of the people involved.
