The Secretary General announces his victory in the parliamentary elections
Following the announcement of the parliamentary elections’ results by the official Electoral Commission, Habib issued a statement announcing his victory in the aforementioned elections and said:
“I sincerely want to thank and express my gratitude to all my Iraqi brothers and sisters who believed in our civil state project as it is thanks to them and their support that we have achieved this victory. I assure them that I, Engineer Aras Habib Mohammed Kareem, will be the voice of the citizen in the next Iraqi parliament.
We pledge to keep all the promises and vows we have made. I would like to point out that, although I consider the Parliament as the highest legislative authority in the country and it is an honor to be one of its members, for me a parliamentary seat is not an end in itself, but a means of achieving the construction, development and social justice project.
On this occasion, I would like to thank the President of the Al-Nasr Coalition, Dr. Haider Al-Abadi, who was the greatest help in overcoming all the difficulties that we faced.
I would also like to extend my thanks to the Independent High Electoral Commission, which competently and professionally supervised these elections, despite all the exerted pressures.
May God bless you all.
Your brother the engineer
Aras Habib Mohamed Kareem”
